Dust in ram slot...

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I can't believe this, after four days of trying to figure out why my computer has been acting up and freezing up every now and then in the middle of proccess. I talk to this guy and he tells me try and blow all the dust away especially in the ram slots, so I did and suprisingly my pc works like new... Does dust really have an affect like that?

the dust can actually cause voltage to surge through and around where the dust is located. or collected like say when you rub carpet then go touch a door handle some times you get the spark. you see it happens but because technology is so advanced in todays mobos they don't really affect the electronics the way they did in the past. for example your playing a game and all is well then all of a sudden it freezes and you get this music loop sounds like satanic chant and some times you get the infamous bsod or it randomly reboots but you get the picture its all a possibility of shock or current fluctuation.
