This is what happens when u let ur furry kitty sleep on ur workstation.










This time it just did not overheat the board. It blew it to kingdom come.




Some one chose poorly....

I think I showed you the little bugger somewhere...!!

I have six cats, and my two or three previous laptops were prone to overheating. After taking them apart to see what was wrong, I found huge clumps of fur in the CPU fan. I've since learned to keep my laptops away from my cats, and I haven't had a problem since :D

Then again, the laptop I'm using right now is brand new--just got it a few months ago. I'll just have to see if I can keep my cats away from it :p

U know what .

I have had a hard time breathing since I brought this PC all night. I was wondering why ?
Never happened that before ?

Once wifey woke up said that the room smells like a cat...... :eek:..!

Yikes !! then I figured out why ?

I had to dust or rather "whisker" the whole thing for a long time to get rid of those ....those...I dunno, what do you call 'em..they are like lint molded in dust kinda thing. :D

Now everything's fine.....but the good news is that the board VRM is fried. :D.
Yippeeeeeeeeee!!

You think u can vacuum every day inside the PC.
If you can then you should have lots of 'em.

I never had asthma before but last night I think I had it.

Cat's furs are indeed dangerous. For humans and to machines too.

:p:D
Why ? :confused:

it will fill in time...
there are furs that u cannot vacuum. Like between the processor sink and fan.
see the pic.

Fur accumulates over time and completely seals the air vents.
