    Hello,
    When am I supposed to clean the CPU Fan? After how many months / years?
    My laptop is still new and 3 months old.

    Look at this video.

    Is this the air vents?

    And is that dust sticking in the fan?

    But how dust get in the fan, I everyday clean my laptop with tissue, I clean the keyboard, the Aluminum surface and the screen.

    The laptop is also still 3 months old. So I didn't use it too much nor I even played an intensive GPU video game.


    Is using vacuum cleaner dangerous for cleaning the Fan?
    I would like to continually clean the CPU Fan to prevent the laptop sudden Shut down afterwards.

    I heard people telling me use a can of compressed air BUT I don't know where to buy this.

    They told me buy it online from eBay but I can't buy online as I don't even have a VISA or MasterCard.

    So, please, is there some other alternative ways to clean the CPU Fan?

    I recommend doing this; first get a can of compressed air, then use that to blow out any/all exhaust vents and intake vents along with all your peripheral ports...eg, USB, HDMI. If this is your only PC/laptop and you use everyday then I'd suggest blowing it out every 2 - 3 weeks.
