Before you start messing with the internals, Disconnect the power (Unplug from back) and get yourself an antistatic strap, otherwise you can advertently short out a circuit

Have you tried Safe Mode. F5 or F8 and wait while all those Drivers load?

Then tell us what happens?

as well as Anti static get a smallish paint brush, a toothbrush, a pencil, and some wipes.

Start with the fans: the fan that cools and the heatsink fan.

Using the flat end of the pencil, cover it with the wipe and gently rub around the fan and the grill areas.

If you can remove the heatsink fan that would help remove the dust.

The main obejective is to remove as much dust as possible even in the PSU.

Go to you tube for more ideas on cleaning and removing components
