Mac mini (Late 2005) Processor Heatsink

I’ve used Mac mini’s a lot in my business and personal life. It’s great to be able to put such a small Mac wherever you want it and they rarely if ever have any problems.
In fact the only problem I’ve ever had with them is that they can end up getting a bit dirty especially if one has pets such as cats or dogs around.
When this 1.33GHz model tarted having some stability issues I disassembled it and cleaned it. The heat sink was almost completely blocked by a combination of hair and dust that fell away during disassembly.

The reason …

The reason ...

Last week I’ve disassembled my good old Acer notebook.
If you ever have wondered about a permanent loud noise from your cooling fan, this can be the reason.

One of the few things things I recovered from my computer crash were luckily my recent trips to the freedom Tunnels. You might see some repeats.

Surgery Part 1

Surgery Part 1

The old Toshiba Latptop is showing it’s age (4 yrs old as my primary computer?)…but of all the laptops I’ve ever had, this one is the best. Oh well…it’s time is coming soon I know. For a while now the fan has been rattling at me, and yesterday it started going super-critical heatwise. It shutdown a couple times even with speed-step (power throttling) enabled. When it did it again today, I decided it was time to open her up fully and see if I could get at the fan.
