Default How to Clean my laptop

Hello All
I have an Asus X552c, some years old and I would love to get it in peak condition.

I would love some ideas as what to do without buying any expensive stuff.

Greetings

Are you willing to take it apart to clean it?

Do you know what is made of, different chemicals may react in different ways with different materials.

I suggest just using alcohol wipes to clean the exterior and a high pressure air compressor (gun) to blow thru ventilation grills/openings. Hopefully this will spin the fans fast enough to clear the dust on them too. You could see if there are quick access covers that can be removed without tools to open them and clean what you can access.

If the storage unit is HDD, you could also replace it with a regular SSD for a good price. This makes a ground and sky difference in performance.
