Is this what I use to blow the dust out of my motherboard, fans, and case? I bought it at staples. Is this what I need?

I don't know about this stuff, sounds dangerous. Says if i inhale i could die! I sprayed some on my tongue and seemed to have caught a buzz. Is there anything less harmful, my goodness.

yikes!

Well, as long as you don't spray the liquid on yourself (which is pretty hard unless you really tilt the thing), then everything's fine. I wouldn't try to get it on the computer either, though I don't think it would kill it.

That stuff = VERY COLD when coming out. Just use bursts, and don't do the tounge thing again!

jig,

I just passed my A+ two weeks ago. Do you think this stuff harmed me by spraying it on my tongue?

OK people.. Let's all calm down. I'm sure at one point in our lives, we took that can of compressed air and sprayed it on some weird part of our body...

*looks around the room*

What... why are you looking at me like that..? What? What?


Ok, let's not lose track here. Just make sure you scan over the warning label on the back (if there is one) and you should be fine.

Another idea (albeit a lame one) is to take it down to a gas station and use their air hose.
