So, since I've become addicted to Elder Scrolls:Oblivion, I've noticed that my computer started making some weird sounds. Intermittently, it sounded like my PC was about to take off into outer space. The fans were really loud and it only happened when I played the game. More often it happened when the graphics got a bit heavy. Admittedly, this computer shouldn't even be able to run the game. It's a cheap old Compaq with a crap ass video card, motherboard that should be burned, and a processor that a Pentium 4 shits on.. But alas, my other computer is the one I game on (Counterstrike) and the man has taken it over. (If you haven't noticed, I'm not on a lot because he tends to be on it..a lot) I assumed that the loud noise was my computer working extra fucking hard to handle this not so graphic heavy game. After I posted today and got some advice, I decided to open the little fucker and see what was going on. What follows are pictures of my dust/cat hair/dog hair incrusted fans and power supply. Oh the pictures do no justice. It was like a cat died in my computer a year ago. After the cleaning, I started it up and started the game. No loud jet-pack sound. Go figure. There was so much dust I had to SCRAPE with a cotton swap to loosen it up. Being without an air can, I found my blow dryer on the cool setting did just fine.
