Dust galore!

Just taken off my side of my tower and to my horror there is so much dust and cobwebs!! Would it be a good idea to give it a clean and what is the best way?

Go down the local camera or PC shop and get a can of compressed Air and blow it out.

If it is as bad as you make it out I would hurry and take advantage of todays weather and do it outside.
That is if you are enjoying the same conditions as here in Manchester.

I keep my computer room well hoovered and dusted. The result is when I open up the computer it is dust free.

When you get it cleaned out, think about where you place your tower. You should place it on your desk or some place high up to avoid dust. Having the tower close to the ground just draws in dust from the floor and carpet.

Compressed air is the best thing...but don't buy the stuff from PC Wrodl (PC Line Air Duster) because its really really poor.

A machine I was asked to look at once was totally disgusting inside. Everything was dripping with a black sticky goo and it smelled worse than it looked. The owner of the machine was a heavy smoker and he kept his ashtray immediately in front of the air intake grill at the front of the computer.

I put the side back on and told him there was nothing I could do.
