    hello ghostman,

    how are you?well, i have got two pc's.one of the them is used by my father himself.and other for me.but recently my fathers pc didnt started as a message appeared like this in the monitor---no input.the computer hardware guy said that there is lots of dust inside the cpu.he cleaned it now running perfectly.
    so the problem is that since my main problems with pc's is dust since my house is nearby to the road.so there is dust pollution.

    he said that if we got a vacuum cleaner.just clean the whole place where the two pc's is placed.

    also i have one doubt.can we open the cpu and just clean the whole dust with a vacuum cleaner.because he too asked for that.i think that's a bright idea.instead of cleaning with the cloth.because the graphics card,tv tuner card etc...since it is very sensitive.if in case it doesnt read due to continous cleaning with a cloth.so better wipe out the dust inside the cpu with a vacuum cleaner.so just is that a good idea or not?looking forward to your reply.

    i also fear lifting various cards.(ie.graphic cards,tv tuner cards etc)since it is very sensitive.lifting it up and inserting again is very dangerous.right.so can i use a vaccum cleaner to wipe out the dust.

    First of all, Where are these two computers ? Are they on the Ground ? You need to get them OFF the floor...They need to be on a Desk or a table..At least two feet off the ground.. Yes ! You can Vacuum the inside the case, BUT you must unplug everything first a be SUPER careful.. NO you do not remove the CPU or heat sink... I Vacuum inside my case all the time, BUT only the bottom...get a small brush to clean off the other parts..

    hello ghostman,

    which are the most important parts inside the cpu case that i have to keep it clean always so in the future for the better performance of the pc by using a vacuum without removing each since i am not that confident in removing those since it is very sensitive.i mean the cpu fan,heat sink,smps etc..

    You just have to be VARY careful of not hitting or bending anything on the Motherboard..You can Vacuum it , But just stay away about 2 or 3 inches..not to hit anything.. I just Use a small paint Brush, to go over all the parts to knock down the dust to the bottom of the case, Then I Vacuum it all up..
    One of the most important is the Power Supply, But you have to vary careful with it.. I just blow it out and use a small brush to remove all the dust from the fan blades..

    hello, first of all thanks a lot for your reply.before vacuuming the power supply smps fan.can we just blow the dust from outside the cpu case using paint brush.will it reach the smps fan and clean it perfectly.will the paint brush inserts well into the fans of smps when wiping dust from outside the cpu case.as shown below in the diagram.just for example.what about the back of the fan of smps.will vacuuming it does the job.will it suck whole dust of the smps fan

    but the OS :win xp 32 is what needed for this game.

    does this game works on 64 bit os windows 7 ultimate even if this game asks for 32 bit os win xp

    hello ghostman,


    when i try to install a program or an application (utorrent) the following message appeared

    but when i installed utorrent(beta mode).it worked.i dont why this message is coming.some applications work while some doesn't.

    the version of this file is not compatible with the version of windows your running.check your computers system information to see whether you need an x86(32bit) or x64(64 bit) version of the program and then contact the software publisher.

    why is this message coming.when i tried to install the game i mentioned earlier resident evil 5.this message appeared.

    this message appeared after installing OS 64 bit windows 7 ultimate.

    what should we do to make all applications run without this message appearing on the screen.which os is the best to make all applications running

    Well,Are you running Windows 7-64 bit ? If you are then that is your problem..That game will ONLY run on Windows XP...
    If you want to run that game then, Remove Windows 7 -64 bit, And Reinstall Windows XP 32-bit..

    You can't, That must be an older game that takes Windows XP to run it.. Does it say on the Game 32 bit or 64 bit ? What size is your video card ? 128/256/512/1gb ?

    Your Video card Will work with the Game, BUT Your OS will not.. That game was meant for WINDOWS XP.... You either have to find another game, OR change your OS back to Windows XP 32 bit..
