This user complained of intermittent crashes and failure to boot.
Externally it looked ok.
Not too much dust.

After opening noticed little black streaks all over the place.
Identified as cockrock feces.

Sure enough I spotted some live ones chilling out on the ram.

I wonder how manymore I will find toasted in the power supply.
