Holy mother of god.
I feel like a douche if I can see dust in my PC.....
As the owner of a computer repair business, I see this stuff EVERY DAY.
It never ceases to amaze me how people can be so absolutely attached and addicted to their computer, but take absolutely no responsibility for it.
I *ALWAYS* blow the computer out before even bringing it into my shop. If a customer brings one in as a "walk-in", I grab it from them and take it outside to my compressor and blow it out. Only thing worse than a bunch of stranger dander floating throughout my workplace than cockroaches harboring inside a computer waiting for a new place to infest.
I have actually seen a couple computers that were full of dead roaches and eggs... when I popped the first one open to blow it out, I realized what they were and took it clear out into the street with a couple cans of compressed air and then sprayed 91% alcohol in it and let it dry before bringing it inside. The other, well, I told them there was nothing I could do for them... I'm sure I could have fixed the problem, but I don't get paid enough to wear a damn Hazmat-certified suit just to deal with some people's computers.
Been repairing computers myself for a few years and it is amazing the condition peoples pc's are in and the fact that they aren't embarrassed to take it to someone when it is full of who knows what.
and y is this in the front page?? :S :S
"Alien set" was a good description.
That's the worst part yes, they arn't embarrassed at all.
Good think I clean my comp one a month ! with compress air and spray for contacts that make it shine one more !
same here e!!.........I clean mine once in a month & the difference I see not only aesthetically but also the temps would drop by 5 & sometimes even by 10 degrees especially the VGA & the CPU radiator!!...........
I used to just deal with dust but my fiance has a cat....just horrible.
Ummm...some of those pictures were posted on THG several months ago....
Excellent candidate for the Fail tread this is , nonetheless some of those PC look gross.
I said that the first time I saw them several months ago.....but, some of them look like they used to belong to my father...
That one full of spiders was just OMG!, if i opened my PC and it was like that i would have to buy a new PC, i wouldn't be able to go near it again .
Good thing i clean mine every week (my precious )
looking at all that dust made my nose feel itchy...
DEAD Frog! OMG!!
sadly, i also deal with this type of rubbish everyday at work.
when i open a computer that has signs of *maladies* i wear gloves and when i deal with filthy laptops -gloves and facemask
i dealt with a computer *painted * in liquid nicotine/tarr substance the smell was so horrible i ended up vomiting in spasms and with a terrible headache
thank god i like fixing computers.....
Man I saw some horrible stuff when working Dell Warranty tear down. Had some pcs that were brown almost black from smoking and dust. We had a few come in the had dead bugs, one even had a dead rat.
What a beautiful build! Really liking the style, definitely diggin' it...
