And I thought the last one I cleaned was bad.

Ehhh, consumer buyers make the assumption , you buy a computer and it is plug and go. No maintenance needed, ever... Like how most people buy a brand new car but fail to get oil changes or have their tires replaced..

However to OP. that thing is disgusting and i would have contemplated on having the customer clean the thing himself/herself.

I was brought a PC by a guy who works with my girlfriend. Had a decent looking case, seemed like he kept it clean on the outside. as soon as I opened it...I realized why he was complaining about it instantly crashing. Looked like that but somehow worse lol.

Smoking+being lazy and not cleaning your pc+being uneducated on proper maintenance of a pc= guys like us making money lol

I've found in my experience with rigs that look like that (or worse) that EVERY time I've cleaned them out (with a few exceptions) I generally end up with something not working correctly. It is really weird, but it almost seems like as soon as I clean them--a part fails or was so fragile that the air cleaning/etc pushed it over the edge. I really hope you can figure it out and if I had any parts lying around that were that old I'd give them to you for free lol.
This. Seems every time I clean my pc a fan starts being really loud, or some other annoying problem pops up. I guess that pc was just being held together by all that dust you removed Xeb lol

The case in my pic above was home-built, so I doubt the dude who owned it before was oblivious to all the dust and the problems it could cause. Not to mention that everything he gave me smelled like cigarettes...

Really, though. You can't complain when you're getting it for free!
