I've seen a number of posts on this forum asking for help because someone's computer no longer boots after they "cleaned" it. I don't usually clean a computer unless I see that airflow is being affected such as a clogged filter or dust caked on a heatsink. Other than that, dust doesn't seem to bother the electronics at all.
To Err is human; to really foul things up requires a Bleeping Computer!

As a shop owner, every system that I have to open I clean as a courtesy to the customer.
Some are so filthy that I am suprized they are not shutting down from overheating!
I clean all vents and fans. It helps them run better.

Once, many years ago, I had a friend whose system wouldnt power up. I told her to bring it over as I worked out of my appartment then. Roaches scattered everywhere when I opened the case!! Yikes!!!
Took me a long time to exterminate them!
In the beginning there was the command line.

Probably the biggest variety of computers' misbehaviors comes from overheating caused by dirty interior.
That's from my experience...
