This is not unbelievable. In a dusty environment and running all of the time, a PC turns into a small vacuum cleaner.

Holy crap!

I've seen some pretty dusty computers but nothing like this. I remember fixing a computer for this girl, she said it wouldn't power on, when I was checking it, I noticed there was a dead lizard inside the power supply :p

it's sad but.... +1

i can't help but feel sorry for the PC. just like cars, the average joe never does any maintenance and expects it to "just run" :no:

I'm not surprised; I've actually seen worse. The bad part, these same people will whine about computer reliability issues and ignore the fact that their computer needs the occasional spring cleaning.

Btw, I'd hate to live in a house with that much dust!

Owning animals does not help, I own an Antec 900 and four dogs... the dust is stupid.

W/C is way to go for me!.
