    My neighbor gave me his old HP Pavilion due to slowdowns and having "too may pop-ups" caused by viruses, malware and other atrocious things. Apart from an obligatory clean install (upgrade from Win Vista to 8.1), I took the opportunity to clean out his entire PC and tidy up the cable management. This was an impromptu video with no pre-production involved so hope you guys don't mind the raw format!

I had this exact PC back in the day, my first "gaming" pc that I bought upgrades for and everything, neat!

Ah yes, the old era of PC where they weren't meant to be looked inside by their users.

If that hard drive is as old as the computer, it should have probably been replaced. An SSD would have given this PC a good boost in day-to-day performance.

This is why I like your channel, you're a good guy instead of just telling him to upgrade and move you took the time to help out more "nerds" and "geeks" need to do stuff like that hell me included. Keep up the great work. Also the GTA taxi videos and System Config videos are fantastic.

I wish I never threw out my first PC build from 1998... I remember how much I loved that thing. I worked my ass off for several months, just to pay for it. Running Windows 98 and exploring everything, right down to Paint and Wordpad.. Then eventually playing my very first PC games, Creatures 2 a trial version of Monster Truck Madness and at some point, the very first Half Life game, which forced me to go out and buy my first AGP video card just to run it. .....And then... the internet. It's crazy how fast time goes by.... I was around 20 years old at that time.

Strangely satisfying, also dude your wiring looks professionally done. Wish I could wire that good.

When I do these for people, I switch it to Lubuntu if they are cool with it because it frees up so much of that used cpu and ram for the actual programs.

Awesome video! Similar experience popping open my family's 6+ year PC. I thought it would be horrid, with computer-care being far from my family's concerns. However, upon opening it, with a similar setup of no positive fans in the front, there was surprisingly very little dust.

My old PC went completely unopened and uncleaned for upwards of 7 years. When I finally decided it was time to look inside I found a dead mouse in there.

I would love to see more videos like this, where you take some old PC and try to make the best out of it. Of course reinstalling an OS is basically always the best idea. Tbh, I would enjoy cleaning up hardware thorough very much :D

This video introduced me to your channel. It's nice to know that even a big tech channel Youtuber will still work on old hardware.

Great video, thanks for sharing! I like to open my case and air the dust out a few times a year, but I’ve never taken my cpu apart, that looks like a good idea! Okay, well, I did once, and put the heat sink back WITHOUT any thermal paste-yeah, I ended up building a whole new computer after I turned the power on (fried)! That was a very quick lesson on thermal paste! :-/

less than 4GB of ram on Windows 8 is just madness. As a pc guy you should know that

I fear that the owner will just mess up the PC again.
