many people forget about cleaning, maintenance and placement of CPU. If you spill something on your computer, or notice that it's not running as smoothly as it used to, it may be dusty and in need of a good cleaning. Cleaning a computer hardware and peripherals should only be done by someone who knows how to take a computer apart. It takes precision and time to ensure that it's cleaned properly without damaging any other components.here is some simple tips that your computer hardware and peripherals have a long age :

  1. Remove carefully the motherboard, fan, harddisk, optic drive, video cards, etc from the computer case. (remember the placement)
  2. prepare a small or midlle size brush (for painting )
  3. spray the motherboard with a can of compressed air. This can be bought in office supply stores and are also called air duster. Spray this over the motherboard to remove any loose dust or debris that's caught in the motherboard.
  4. Brush any areas that the air compressor didn't clean very lightly, including fan, video card, memory, hard disk, etc

    I find it useful to take a picture of the insides when I'm taking out cards and unplugging stuff. I can use the picture to make sure I get stuff back in the right place.
