Sooooooooooooooooo

I have never ever claimed to be smart about computers.

And once again I can prove how uninformed I am.

But maybe this ignorance of mine can help someone out there....maybe you?


As I said before, I have been having computer problems...

let me give you a few more details, in fact I will tell you what I told the computer guy over at Portable Source.

Me: My computer seems to working extra hard. It makes a ton of whirring noises when i use the internet. After 15 -30 minutes it gets super hot and just shuts down.

Guy: Hmm, let me see it ( he stares at the bottom of my laptop) I will be right back.

so he disappeared for a minute, I heard some loud noises and then he returned.

Guy: try it out now

Me: What?

Guy: I just blew out an extraordinary amount of dust and dirt from your vents, looked like a sandstorm in Iraq.

Me: You are supposed to keep those clean? I have had that computer for 2 years and have never ever done that.

Guess what folks? My computer is working perfectly now!! The fan just needed a little (a lot) of compressed air cleaning! A miracle!

Best part? It was FREE! No computer repair bill! I really appreciate the computer guy's honesty with me...it would have been a perfect opportunity for him to take advantage of my lack of computer wisdom and rip me off!
