    You can try using a can of compressed air from Best Buy, Radio Shack or Wal-Mart. Other than that you will have to have it taken apart and cleaned by someone that is familiar with doing this

    Ok thank you for your suggestion but I am thinking of buying smaller type of vacuum cleaner for this. Lets see what may happen!

    You will only be able to remove some dust around the keyboard or the air vents. Eventually, the dust inside the laptop around the CPU and graphics and north-bridge chips will cause the thermal pads and paste to prematurely fail...
