Hello Kongregate. My computer has been acting really strangly and i can’t take it much longer. Its a 2006 dell computer that has been acting fine until these past few months. Just this month and last month it has blue sreened me (failed me) at least 20 times. I have had to system restore it at least 25 times and it has disconnected me at least 27 times. Some nights it will be working fine other not so fine. I went through and deleted nonsense files and programs that i don’t use, ran multiple virus and spyware scans, i even ran a program called spinrite that is supposed to locate any problem in my computer. Nothing. Please if you have any ideas please help me.

Thank You

I think you should just get a new computer. Or call Geek Squad.

I just finished fixing a friends computer that was hardly working; blue screens and all. It largely came down to the fact that they had not cleaned the dust out, which was causing the hardware to malfunction in a variety of ways. I cleaned the dust, tested and reseated each of the components and got it working. A lot of people simply don’t understand that you have to clean them out regularly under consistent use.

I’ve had my computer for like 6 years. I’ve never cleaned it, nor have I witnessed it being cleaned, nor am I aware that it has been cleaned.

Will it break down (in the future)?

Everything will break down in the future, but cleaning the inside of your computer isn’t going to damage it (assuming you don’t go in hamfisted and break everything) so you might as well do it. Just use a can of compressed air or something.
