You can try to borrow a compressed air can, the dust needs to be gone before any damage occurs, you know how to use a can of compressed air?

Or you can also try to remove the dust with a paintbrush and have a vacuum cleaner nearby.

Kind regards,

Well I guess the USB stick for updating the BIOS and really money shouldn't be an issue, you should be able to get your hands on one that is like ~5 euros.

My experience with USB's of ~5 euro is they aren't bootable, you'll have to pay some more money for one that is actually bootable and reasonable.

I know but I had to recommend as he said that he didn't have money like Uncle Scrooge.

There's a saying in Swedish: "Man tager vad man haver" and it basically translates to "You take what you have" and go with it..

My suggestion would be to see if family or friend can borrow a bootable USB

Nooo dammit.. i thought it worked this time..

I managed to find a painters brush and remove around 70% of all the dust in the pc.
So i thought lets give it a go. it went well! i was around 10 minutes into the tutorial and BAM bluescreen again..

Ill buy a can of compressed air and a usb stick aswell
