I hope your not sticking the vacuum cleaner near any of your internal hardware... many a computer has been completely screwed because the owner has hit the motherboard with the nozzle of their Hoover.

As for Cleaning, I just use our air compressor (canned air would work just as well) to blast the dust out of the fans and the dust filters over the intakes, the rest of the case stays reasonably clean, although I'll give it a once over with a damp Chux cloth once in a while to remove any dirt and fingerprints on the outside.

No, obv i unplug the computer first and let it cool, on my Dyson i have a nozzle that has hair around the end, suitable for cleaning say delicate items.

Once i've cleaned the system, i like to see how good the dyson really is with out loosing any suction, i try it on my self . Its good!

Thanks.
I know how you feel. My monitor is piano black and it sucks and attracts dust and fingerprints from all four corners of the universe.

I bought a Belkin LCD Display cleaner that comes with a micro-fiber cloth. Works great and got my monitor looking good as new. Didn't realise how mucky the screen was until I got it cleaned up.

As for the inside of the case, I cleaned my CPU heatskin/fan from dust for the first time in 18 months. Was quite a bit of dust built up around it, but not bad for 18 months running. Dust guards are a God send.
