In Reply to: Canned air, for crash dump problem by CourtneyBlair

Bob Proffitt turned me onto this trick when I had problems with my laptop. All of the vents and cooling fans as well as the cooling fins get clogged up with dust and fuzz bunnies and air flow is restricted so the machine overheats and crashes. In older laptops you might even want to check out new thermal paste on the heat sink.. Hope this helps out....Digger
