  1. Using the PC's fan to clean the inside


    Hi all,


    I know I've done this in the past, but now can't find an option in settings or the control panel, to use the laptop fan to blow out the dust & general crud from the inside of the PC.


    Can anyone help please?

    :)

    The tutorials provided are just a list of troubleshooting steps. Use only the steps which apply to you.

    Since none of the troubleshooting steps here worked, I'd suggest you do a Clean install.

    Hi,

    Please answer these questions to assist you better.

    • Have you installed all pending Windows and driver updates?

    Install all pending Windows and driver updates in your PC. Updates are additions to software that can help prevent or fix problems, improve how your computer works, or enhance your computing experience.

    Please refer to the following Wiki article created by Andre Da Costa

    Using the PC's fan to clean the inside

    Overclocking / Undervolting guide for Vega 56 or 64?

    Here's a quick laundry list:

    List of software to use for overclocking and testing
    Examples:
    Wattman (and how to find and use it, like an overview, including profiles)
    Unigine Valley or Heaven (use this for quick testing while changing settings in Wattman and checking for stability / artifacts) ...just suggesting this
    How to monitor cores / mem speeds and temps during testing (I've seen screen overlays, and others using GPUz)

    Step-by step overclocking in Wattman
    Fan speeds
    Power limit
    Temp limit
    Voltages
    Core speeds
    Memory speeds
