Ok... Where can I get a canned air?

Can't I just brush all the dusts off?

To clean inside a PC system do you have to unplug all the wires which are connected to the pc before I open the pc case and clean it or doesn't matter if the plugs are all connected to the pc.

Any department store would have canned compressed air and that will do the job. You may want to keep a small vacuum on at a distance to suck up the floating dust, otherwise it will just settle elsewhere

Is it okay to use a Small Ball pump?

Does it have to suck in the ''dusts'' or blow the ''dusts'' because if any of those 2 works then I think Small Ball Pump will work...
