Still Got Problems Folks

Moments after finishing that last post the computer hung again. Or is that hanged again? Ol' Saddam only had to hang once.

So, bearing in mind that the computer bloke said it could be a power supply problem I moved the computer to give it more air and discovered that the vents were covered in lint. Took the side cover off and the fans were covered in lint too. I swapped the power cords to the hard drives and cleaned off all the lint. I do need to remove the heat sink from the processor as it is filthy too. Perhaps my processor got too hot and that is why the computer hangs.

Bit of work to do yet. Getting there though.
