Has your computer got a virus or is it suffering from Inflamation?
Posted on May 9, 2011
Computer motherboards have components called capacitors (amongst many others) which are susceptible to swelling after a period of time – They start to bulge out at the top (this time period depends on their quality See this article).
When you see this, your overdue for a replacement computer! It can show signs of freezing, slow and become unreliable. Ive have had computers come in the workshop with “It’s got a virus”, only to open up the computer to see the above scenario.
Leave it too long and you may loose all of your data when the computer finally “gives up the ghost”!
Some “High end” motherboards have different capacitors that aren’t prone to this condition, however due to their price, you need to weigh up the extra $$ as most good brand motherboards will outlast the average replacement period (for businesses this is between 3 and 5 years).
Just another reason to buy from “your local reseller” – We will always provide you with the correct service and support!
