Typing from other computer.
Some time ago, I requested help about my overheating laptop. They wanted system specs. But whenever I tried to view my system properties or specs, my Vista shuts off randomly. No error message, nothing. As if it had been force shutdowned.
So I decided to live with it.
The other day, I was using my Vista. Due to overheating, it changed into a black screen as a fail safe. But the fan kept blowing on, and my computer became hotter and hotter. I could not turn it off, for the Power button was too hot to touch.
Then the computer burst into flames! After searching the web, there was only one other person who had the same issue as me, and his thread didn't provide much help.
But before that. The computer was jammed with dust. The reason I did not clean it out is because my computer was manufactured with the assumption overheating would never happen. Therefore it was impossible to dismantle.
What I want to know is, why did this happen?
