I have a 4 1/2 year old computer. When i opened the side cover there is a layer of dust on the motherboard, graphics card and etc. I heard that you have to clean it out once a year. Should I use compressed air if so were would i get it ? or a small vacuum? and should I get the dust under the cpu fan? :tazz:

you can used canned antistatic air....basically you can get this at any store that sells electronics, walmart, best buy, circuit city, wherever. i would avoid using a vaccuum cleaner because to suck the dust off you would have to get it close enough to the motherboard itself that you might bend something out of place.....if it's really dirty in there you will deffinitly need more than one can.

you should really clean it out more than once a year (mine is currently full of cat litter so....i'm guilty too) probably every couple of months or so
