Hello. Problem: Today morning turned comp on 1st time, LOUD fan(?) noise, got all the way to opening Interent Explorer then just shut down. 2nd try, loud noise, got to Windows startup screen, then just shut down.
Background: --For a few weeks now any online streaming video has been going super choppy.
--Yesterday opened up computer, and found massive amounts of dust. Cleaned up power supply fan and cpu fan. After that comp worked a lot more quietly than it had in the past few years (?). I thought the comp might be slightly faster too, is that even possible from dust cleaning?
--Comp seemed to always have memory usage spikes up to 70-100%, just with internet Explorer on.
--On side of comp it says
HP Pavilion a6228x pc
AMD Athlon 64 x2
Dual core procesor 5200+
---Inside comp from what I remember
4g installed mem
2.2g "usable"?? I dont know...?
3g being used or working or something like that I think. sorry.
Okay, that is all the stuff I know, can anybody help me please? I tried to read up on this and people say cpu fan or heat sink or actual cpu damage?
