Lightbulb Blowdrying My Laptop? - June 16th 2009, 09:54 PM

On the cool setting? I don't have the pressured air, will it clean the outside of the dust and stuff? Is it safe.

I don't see a problem with it, though I usually just vacuum my computer.

LMAO Janos is the pressurized air king... I think that as long as it's on the cool setting you won't have too much of a problem.


I'd sing you a song, but I'm feeling quite off
in my heart; it's occupied,

and now's not the time.

Mighty Janos :P
LOL

Anyway, no if you put it on a cool setting and not on high then it should be fine. Is it just the keys you want to clean?

*feels extremely self-conscious* >.>

But yeah, I agree with what's been said here, just be aware the dust will go everywhere. And some of the dust thats coating the components or the grills around the fans might not come off like that, but for them, you can usually just peel them off with your fingers, though be sure to earth yourself first.

I would suggest to go get a can of the air for cleaning comps.
Hair dryers don't mix when trying to get dust out of a comp.
