So about a week ago I vacuumed my computer using quite a big one for carpets and all.
But after vacuuming the computer failed to boot and I think it's the motherboard's fault cuz no bios screen shows up.
The problem was that i forgot to backup saves and all before vacuuming.
Nevertheless it was a dual core computer and i bought another one( the reason i vacuumed was to move the GTX 465 and psu from my old to the new quad core cpu,casing,motherboard,memory,storage)

So is vacuuming your computer safe? I read things about static electricity. Everything was attached during the vacuuming.
If it's not safe what should i use for cleaning ?
I managed to move the old hdd to the new comp but skyrim,terraria,etc saves are in my documents so I have to start anew.

Use air spray, or a less powerful vacume..
