Murphy's Law

Murphy's Law seems to be in our family. What should take 10 minutes to do, will take my family 45 minutes to do. etc.

The other day, I decided to clean out my computer, the inside of it. I took off the side panel, looked inside and thought what a mess. I mean there was cat hair, and an inch of dust all over everything.

I went and bought a can of dust remover for computers. I sprayed it all over everything. I was covered in dust. I took out the screwdriver which was not a magnetic screwdriver. I was told that it will fry your mother board. I unscrewed the power supply from the back so that I could take it apart, I opened it up and sprayed it out too, it was worse than the computer itself. I took a q-tip and cleaned out the fan blades. Then I got the bright idea to use just a little bit of machine oil on the fan shaft. I used less than a drop on it. I put everything back together and reattached with the screws.

It worked great for a day. I ended up frying the power supply. My computer died, it didnt crash it flat out died. I searched the house for an extra power supply. I found it, an old one that might work. I put it in and it worked for 3 hours before it died.

I was so sad, a new computer is what I had to buy now, I don't have a job and money is tight. So what can I do. I went to a friend that is a computer (geek), I told her what was going on, and she said no problem. She said go to and buy a new power supply for it. $16.50 for a better one than I had. I opted for the 3 day select. I ordered it on Sunday morning (Easter). I thought that a good time to watch for it would be Wednesday or Thursday. By Friday I would have been a bit upset.

To my surprise, it showed up today. Its Tuesday. I am extremely happy with 3B Tech.

If you need anything to do with computer please go and check them out. I am sure you will be as happy with them as I was.

Have a great day everyone,
