(Scroll down for video) An elderly man used a hair blow dryer to heat up a computer because his grandson told him it was frozen, according to a video uploaded to the Internet.

Now, the video of an elderly man trying to heat up a frozen computer with a hair blow dryer, went viral on the Internet.

23-year-old Jeremy Hernandez of California, grabbed his camera to record his grandfather as he was trying to heat up the computer.

Hernandez uploaded to the video on social media sites and it has accumulated more than 5 million views.

“This grandfather would probably take the computer to a hospital when it gets a virus, to the garage when it crashes, to the shoe shop when it needs to reboot,” The Contusie wrote after seeing the video.

“I had a friend tell me that it took a hair dryer to start his computer. He would have to blow hot air into the power supply, and when it warmed up enough it would boot. The PSU had bad thermistors, and replacing it fixed the problem,” Secret Squirrel commented.
