Dust Fixes things?

A couple months ago I put my HP touchsmart tx2 into hibernate. I left for the weekend and when I came back all I would get outta it was a fan running and some lights. No Post, nothing at all. I took it apart and tried to troubleshoot, nothing worked. so i had it apart, on my dresser collecting dust for two months. For the heck of it i tried it again yesterday, and voila! it works as fine as it did then. very confusing, I guest dust has some magical properties

Dust has no magical properties, it makes me cough, it makes my skin itch like I have poison ivy 24/7 lol. I hate dust

Whatever you did when you put it back together was the magical part

Glad you got it working again

It'd be great if dust had magical properties - but unfortunately it does not :)

Some device just like to defy explanation

If dust had magical properties, I would be rich, smart, healthy, slim, and good looking.
