This is a desktop, you should be able to open the case and blow out everything with canned air.

 

Before you touch anything on the inside of the case be sure the computer is off and unplugged.  Before touching anything inside you need to touch the metal of the case to discharge any static electricity from your body.  This can kill board components. 

 

Pay particular attention to the heat sink and fan on the CPU.  I would suggest placing a finger inside the blade to keep it from spinning while you blow it out.  If the heat sink has caked dust you may want to use Q-tips to clean it out.


Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
