View Full Version : What is your preferred method of removing dust?

I'm starting to notice dust build up in my G75vw side ports. It appears the air flows in though these as well as the bottom and was wondering what everyone likes for dust removal. I was going to use compressed air, but I don't want to push the dust deeper in to it, it needs to blow out from behind the ports.

I've always used compressed air, just gotta be gentle on the trigger and not concentrate it in just one spot, especially around the fans.

Open the bottom up and direct air towards the underside of the fan housing to the ports at a 45 angle. It'll blow it right out the way you want it to.

Use the red straw if yours came with one, you'll know what I mean.

That's what mine is missing is the red straw, should have looked more closely.

Can still be done without one, just do it in short consecutive blasts.

i think compressed air is good idea, because you are unable to dismantle any more.
