If it's broke...take it apart...

Last night...I got a little scare!!! I went into my computer room to hear complete silence...NOT GOOD!! I should have been hearing the fan of my computer!! I didn't!! YIKES!! I push the power button...and nothing!!
So...what do I do??
Well...I shut the lights off and left it overnight hoping for it to come back to life...
miraculously...
on it's own...
while I am sleeping!!

Fast forward a good 10 hours
(yeah...I slept that long!LOL)
walk into the room...push the power button again!
aaaand...
nothing! Still dead!!!
(Yes...i did unplug the whole thing and replug it in...didn't work)


Onto plan B.
open my computer tower ...vacuum it out...cuz it is FULL of dust...
check the wires...well at least pretended I "knew" what they were all for!
close the tower back up...
plug it back in...
and
VOILA!!
IT TOTALLY WORKS!!!!!

so from now on....THAT is how I will "fix" mechanical problems!!!!!!

HaVe a WoNdeRfuL DaY!!!!!

Isn't it amazing how much stuff gets in there? Growing up my mom always tried to fix stuff that broke, I can remember her fixing the washer/dryer, fridge, etc. All on her own, she said she figured it was already broken so she couldn't hurt anything! Glad you have a "live" computer again!
