  • 1000 – Accepted computer from a co-worker, he said “it’s trash.”
  • 1800 – Got computer home and opened up the side panel — it looked like something had been spilled into the ventilation grille on the top and dripped down across the motherboard. Took a few minutes with Purple Power [MSDS] to clean it all off.
  • The motherboard appears to be a 2005 model. It also appears to be burned out. No fucking way am I plugging it in – don’t want to burn the house down.
  • The 6-in-1 memory card reader appears to be trashed
  • If he had taken some time to clean the inside on occasion, it would probably still be functional (if he hadn’t spilled whatever it was on the vent).
