Are we talking about cleaning the inside of a laptop or desktop.

If your referring to a laptop you really don't want to take one of those apart unless you know what your doing. I'm telling you this from experience since I take laptops apart almost on a daily basis to replace things like the mobo's and other parts. You can use a can of duster in the fan port to kind of blow out some of that dust.

If your talking about desktops then all you have to do is take off the side panel and just use a can of duster in there to clear out all of the dust.

Can small can of compressed air would do the trick.

Ok. Thanks guys.

Do I have to unplug all the wires connected to the pc before I open the pc system (not laptop) and clean all the dusts off or doesn't matter if the wires are plugged in... I think I heard that to be safe I have to unplug all the wires which are connected to the pc but prove me wrong. Lastly, do I have to use a can of air to clean it? Once I've used like a brush or some sort to cleaned it and nothing really happened it was all good...

Just make sure you unlplug your computer from the wall before you start.

You don't have to use a can of compressed air, but it would make for a more through and complete job.

All you need to unplug is the power cord, everything else can stay hooked up.

If you don't want to buy a can or air, just use a air compressor with a blow nozzle thing (not sure what its actually called) on the end if you have one. It works just as good and is free. I wouldn't use a brush though, you could possibly damage something that way.

About that Air Compressor. You don't want something with too much power, such as an industrial strength air compressor.

I use a small air tank, one normally used to fill up bicycle tires. It gets the job done.

Is it okay to use a ''Small Ball Pump?''

I think it will work because it gives out the air but I'm not too sure about this so please do post reply.

Not if it's the sort that you have to squeeze to get air out. Buy a can of compressed air: you'll need something with that kind of pressure to dislodge the worst of the caked-on dust.

I know this hasn't been brought up but just in case no one has ever told you this, NEVER use a vacuum cleaner to remove dust from inside your case. Many people do this because it's fast and easy. Vacuums can create static; static is a death sentence for circuit boards. Buy a can of compressed air like everyone in here has already stated. You can get it just about anywhere even at wally world for 2-3USD a can.
