The topic: If you do stuff inside your computer

----------------------------------------------

and you push a lever by mistake, don’t just wonder what it was and close up.  After I had the new memory installed (runs good), the fan just kept running and running.  Very annoying, yet it didn’t do this before I installed the new RAM.  So, I unplugged the power cord, pushed the on button to release any electrical remnants or whatever you call them (the light came on, albeit very shortly).  I laid the thing on its side (with all other cords still attached, I know, my bad, should have all powered things off) and checked out the fan.  It wasn’t seated.  Pushing that lever moved the fan.  And it was very, very dusty.  I covered up the open computer with a towel and got a straw and blew out the fan.  Brian saw what I was doing and went out to start the big air compressor, brought the compressor hose in and blew that sucker out.  No more dust, no more dirt.  I put it back into place, shut the computer up, plugged it in and we have quiet.

It’s so nice.

It’s so quiet, I actually started wondering if the fan was even working.  Did a quick Google search to find out the computer won’t start up without a working fan.  So, we’re good.  And we’re fast. And maybe now, when I play a game, it won’t crap out like they used to.

One can only hope.
