You can try cleaning the dust off the components like the Graphics Card of the computer. I would recommend using a small blower or rubbing the components with a soft cloth. Make sure that you do not damage any parts with moisture or cause harm to any circuits while carrying out this task. Check if it is not already damaged physically.
Make sure that you do this very carefully because even a slight bruise can cause your computer to stop working and may cause you financial expenses.
