You may notice some small degradation in speed. Sometimes a good internal cleaning will solve the problem. If all else is working OK, I really wouldn't worry to much about it.

Thank you.

I can probably learn how to do an internal cleaning here on Ifixit.

I also notice that my L3 Cache does not show up in the system profiler.


It used to show 1MB DDR L3...and now not.


Here's how to get to the heat sink, fans and rear vent to clean them out, you may want to reapply thermal paste at this time: PowerBook G4 Aluminum 17" 1-1.67 GHz Heat Sink & Fan Assembly Replacement

Here's the paste I use: Arctic Silver Thermal Paste Here's a generic guide on doing it: Comment appliquer de la pâte thermique


Could the need for a cleaning account for the "failed" test result and the disappearance of the L3 cache readout as stated above?
