GOOD point! I've had more than once a service call for the same problem
or similar. All it took was a good cleaning with my portable
compressor....yeah, it's heavy and will provide up through continuous
100psi. I take the shell off the 'puter and then take it outside for a
good cleaning.....same for the keyboard while I'm at it. Then, I reseat
all cards, RAM, and cables...inspect everything. 99.9% of the time, all
problems are gone.
