    I cleaned the inside of my PC today as it's been a while since I have cleaned it and there was quite a bit of dust built up. After I cleaned it I noticed that in addition to the regular dust I find while cleaning it usually, there were some little white bits, like fragments of plastic, splinters almost.:confused:

    I had a look around inside to see what these could be off, but I couldn't find anything, they weren't too strong I think because i was able to break them with my fingernail, they looked and felt like plastic or maybe paint or something. I clean the inside with compressed air and a brush, the brush has white plastic bristles, but i don't think it's from this because the width and appearance of the fragments I found is different.

    I just wondered if anyone has any ideas as to where this could have come from, I'm hoping something hasn't broken inside. :(

    Many Thanks
