Woody & Ted: "Shooting Flames"
Posted: Wednesday October 18th, 2006 by

So, I received the much anticipated call from Data Doctors yesterday evening letting me know my computer was "fixed". Then Eric, the store manager, was kind enough to stay late to make sure I didn't have to wait another day on my rig. It's back and working fine.

So, the problem with my computer? Ironically, considering Monday's comic, it was overheating. Apparently, the heatsink wasn't seated completely, and there wasn't enough thermal paste.

This was a bit of a surprise because when I first started having issues with the machine, my first thought was that it was overheating. It's a newer motherboard and rather than frying your processor and potentially your board it will shut itself down. So, I ran some heat tests under stress and everything was registering well within the safe ranges. So, I dismissed it and moved on.
Mistaaaaaaake. [Thanks Dana Gould.]

Now, if I could just figure out how to make the computer shoot flames to dissipate heat...

Seriously, the things running like a champ now. Thanks Data Doctors fo picking up my slack.
