Why shouldn’t I use a vacuum to clean the inside of a PC?
bralphye 23 weeks ago
I’ve always heard it as a rule to follow, but have never been certain why it is a bad idea to use a vacuum to clean out a dusty old PC. It’s isn’t as if there are a lot of loose components that are going to be sucked up, and I’m careful enough that I wouldn’t bang around. If one is careful, would it be ok to use a vacuum (a small household one with a soft brush attachment to be specific) to get a couple of years of dust out of a PC?
