    Step 1: Unplug PC and remove all external connected device's
    Step 2: Bring PC to well ventilated area, prefferably outside
    Step 3: Remove 2, maybe 3 screw's, holding side panel to case
    Step 4: Being mindfull of placement/contact use vaccuum &/or air blast to remove dust

    Rinse & repeat! :)

    I had some chick spew chunk's all over my dash one night on my way to droppin' her off @ home, can't stand people who don't know their limit's, or forget what a window/door is! The worst thing is I had to clean it up! Needless to say i never spoke to her again :laugh:

    Some of these new pics look like PC's that have been stuck out in a barn or some other storage. I think we need to make sure the pics posted are ones from PC's that are in use (or stopped working due to the filth issue and you found it when you got called in to look at it).

    Agreed?

    Yeah, I thought generally the rule was that if a chick spewed in a dudes car she owes him a BJ at the minimum...(redeemable at a time when she isn't vomiting everywhere.)

    lol, years back while driving me and some mates back from a nightclub, the dude in the front passenger seat wasnt feeling too good and chunked out the windows while i was on the highway... all of the windows were open (it was summertime and in south africa so was very warm night)... all the puke went straight back into the back of the car through the window and splattered all over the 3 dudes in the back seat :D

    funny now but i was seriously pissed at the time (and laughing too a bit). :laugh:

    I don't have pics, but I'll try to paint one for you. You may not want to read this if you're about to have a bite to eat.
    The boss's daughter (remember that) and I were sent out to a client's house back in the late '90's. I don't remember what we went there for, although, she worked on the software side and I worked on the hardware/LAN side. The clients were an old married couple and both were lawyers. When I pulled up to the house, I saw a grand ol house that looked more suited for a horror movie than a lawyer's office. Big, grand house with almost no paint and the grasshoppers had gotten way behind on the yard work. I think I even called back to the office to verify I had the correct address. I believe that I met the boss's daughter on the way out (or she called me) and she warned me about what I was to encounter. I went up and rang the doorbell and when the door opened, I wanted to run away, but, I have to be professional, right? I grew up on a farm so I can handle smells, but, as I was lead the length of the house to the stairwell, I noticed 1 foot circles on the carpets (area rugs) ALL over the house and the smell of ammonia and urine was one of the worst smells I'd ever run into. (I'm not sure if I remember actually seeing feces on the floor) I went upstairs as directed and found the same thing upstairs. I looked into the problem and told them that I would have to take their PC's back to the shop to work on them just as a way to get out of that house. Of course no one would believe me when I got back to the office. The boss's daughter was no where to be found. When we finally got ahold of her, we found out that she had gone home to take a shower to get the smells off of her and to get started on laundering her clothes! When she came back to the office, we were finally able to convince everyone (watching their faces change from "oh right" to "I might have to go there" was priceless) and talked the boss into jacking up the quote so hopefully we would not need to go back. They accepted our quote but I was fortunate to have a job on the other side of town the day they went back, only to find that they had done a great job cleaning up.

    Common issue on some older chips. The thermal paste gets really thick when cool and the CPU comes out of the socket still attached to the heatsink.

    This came out of an HP DC5000 computer. We had someone that complained their DC5000 was running really loud all the time. One of the guys pulled the heatsink off on this noisy PC to clean off the old compound and replace it with some Arctic Ceramique I have. However, he stopped there and left the office for a while.

    I came into his office, saw what he was up to and thought I'd help him out. I cleaned it up and applied the new compound, then went about seating the heatsink. I put one of the clips on, but saw that the second clip had a loop broken off the plastic mounting bracket (it's a S478 Pentium 4 CPU). We had another DC5000 that that had it's own issues, so I planned on taking the bracket off that one to use on the noisy PC. I undid the clips on it and removed the heatsink, only to find the CPU stuck to the bottom of it (and of course, the nasty dust, dander, wtf mess underneath).

    If this was one of my computers for home, I probably would have warmed the CPU up a little before I unmounted the heatsink.

    I know. I already came across a situation like that. Socket was 939, though. Had to go all hammer and chisel (screwdriver) on it, because the damn thing wouldn't let go of the heatsink. :laugh:

    Didn't had either. It didn't need that much strength as well. Popped right off at 1st try. Didn't use too much strength and had a cloth so it didn't damage the pins for when it landed on the table.
