proper cleaning of the inside of a computer(dust)? i expect to find alot of dust.

any advice,what does one use as a cleaner?

i understand preventing static electricity is number one.

also,i understand,do not use those compressed air products inside the computer.

thanks

Hi sharky,
The cans of compresseed air for pc's are ok. Just dont shake them while you are spraying. When you do use them watch for liquid then stop. Then try again. I personally use the electric compressor we have at work. Everyone who has a pc needs one of those !! LOL You can also use an anti static vacuum. they arent very expensive, I dont think, and they work pretty well.

Personally, I use the canned air. I wouldn't recommend a compressor, unless you have a drier installed in-line. Air from a compressor leaves quite a lot of condensation when it leaves the nozzle, I've had it actually leave a PCB wet. I also use a small hand vacuum with a slim wand for some places in the case.
