What air? It only moves air and the air heats up cooling the components but it is still the same air that was in your room! No fumes.

Please seek medical attention as soon as you can. The symptoms you report could be life threatening.

Looks like your house doesn't get enough ventilation, open up a windows :)

New pcb's are sprayed with a silicone based product to protect their circuits from statics etc. this spray on thing can cause strange respiration symptoms for some people.

After a while the fumes get less and less potent, and it's usually only a problem with new hardware. This is also why most new hardware stink heavily the first couple of

months.

If you stay to long time at PC and you are dizzy go to see an oftalmoligist. Maybe you'll need to ware glasses. Sometimes i have the same simptoms and i know i need glasses.Its not a joke go control your eyes.

i use glasses... so the gass from pcs do not cause brain dmaage or problems ?

I might actually have a cold instead that makes me have these symtpoms i am not too sure
its not impossible.. i showered last 2 days ago if i remember right

The air isn;'d bad, what you can be experiencing is EMF emitted from your computer. As long as you are 90cm away from your comp. You shouldn't worry.

I hope your parent's never call you complaining of that symptom....

@OP - get your ass to the ER Now

why do I say that? Because a year ago I had very simular symtoms but I had a what I thought was a cold or bronchitis. When it, dizzy spell and coughing like crazy, cleared up instead of going to bed I figured I had better get to the ER and get some penicillin for I was sure it was bronchitis now. Well an hour later I was in heart surgery. Had I decided to go to bed instead I would not have made it thru the night. Thats right I would be dead right now. I had a silent heart attack and never ever knew it.

Do you have a CO detector in your house? If not, tell your parents to get one. Your symptoms are consistant with CO poisoning.

Air from a computer is not bad for you, they don't produce toxic fumes or burn fuel, they simply draw in air blow it across some metal cooling fins and push it back out the case.

However as others have mentioned, you may have a medical situation to tend to.

Hey how about some excercise.. - he may be a big fella and sitting there playing what ever game he plays cuts of air supply or circlulation..

More likely carbon minoxide - open the window and call for a heating engineer to check your heating system

maybe you need glasses or have an inner ear problem - what ever happens dude u must get this checked out !!
I'm allergic to cats and dogs but hey.

Well guys what is A CO ? and what is CO detector?

carbon dioxyde?

well thankfully this only happened recently i usually dont have these symptoms .
AND I dont think i have a heart attack beacause i am here

CO is Carbon Monoxide, too high of a percentage of it in the air you breathe can kill you, you just fall asleep and don't wake up.

This is how people kill themselves when they put a hose from their car exhaust back into their car window and turn it on, CO poisoning does this.

It could also be mold related if it only happens in one room in the house. There could be mold on the other side of the wall and that could also potentially be extremely deadly.

I think you should go to the Emergency Room too, to be on the safe side, and get your house tested for poisoning agents like CO and mold.

I mentioned that I had had a heart attack. Test showed that it was 3 or 4 days prior to me going to the ER. They have a chemical marker that narrows it down pretty good I'm told. I never even suspected it. My dizziness I attributed to exerting myself while having a cold and not being able to breathe well. Boy was I wrong.
