Question about Computers & Internet
Hi again VampireVenus ,
My apologies for the delay in response. I had to iron out something with some of my colleagues about your post
To your problem at hand; If I am not mistaken, the unit is a couple of years old and therefore we could expect some deterioration in any of the hardware components. It is also possible that it could be due to dirt accumulated. If you feel comfortable opening your unit and performing a DIY (do-it-yourself), then it should be possible to restore the PC to operational status.
Why don't we try cleaning first the inside. Upon removal of the side panel, pls pay special attention to the following:
1. heatsink and fan of the CPU;
2. memory and memory slots;
3. video card, video card heatsink & blower, AGP slot;
4. additionally, you can use a pencil eraser to clean the little gold pins of the memory and the video card (assuming the computer has an add-on video card and not a built-in to the motherboard).
A clean, dry paint brush would help. A vacuum cleaner would also be nice. For those areas that are hard to reach, a can of compressed air could be used.
Additionally, there would be a coin size battery inside, should it possible, it may also be worth your while to replace it.
Further, pls verify that the cables are connected snug and fit.
Will look forward to your update(s).
