The reason this levovo R61 was brought in was due to a message that came up when computer was first turned on. it said “fan Error” on the black screen and nothing else. so this message is usually pretty good indication of fan failure, however I could still hear the fan start and spin a little bit, so it was a bit unclear what was going on. of course until I opened the laptop and saw this: Take a good look at this image of IBM Lenovo R61. this is what happens to a lot of laptops and desktop, but not as bad as this.
the grey stuff you see there is yeah, almost like sand. So I don’t know whether the person works and uses this Lenovo r61 in construction or somewhere, but this layer of dust is a bit too much for normal wear and tear so to speak. And of course the fan was pretty clogged as well as all the other part of the computer.
this is of course an extreme case, but nonetheless keeping your laptop dust free is very important. because things like that cause all kinds of trouble. when fan goes out your laptop can and usually does overheat, this may cause damage on the components on motherboards. So if you go to a store and get yourself a can of compressed air and clean your laptops fan every now and then you will be much better off than doing nothing and it will keep your laptop working much longer!
