  1. Hi, my USB, Ethernet, Sound Card & GFX Card are gathering quite a lot of dust. Can you recoment the best way to remove the dust build up? Can disconnect the power and use a vacum cleaner with a really small plastic attatchment? Or does this risk static damage?

    Best way, is high pressure air

    You can either find someone with one of these pneumatic air compressors (preferred). or purchase a pressurized air can.

    I do this all the time (using a pneumatic air compressor) you would be astounded at how much dust is in the average used computer!
