Where is the cooling vent located? (Specs included)

Here's the link to my computer specs. I've seen pictures of a HP all in one computer and a vent would be on the back on the bottom but the back of my computer is different and I don't see a vent anywhere unless there's something in the back that's supposed to act like a vent. I need to clean the vent but don't know where to find it.

Hi,

Thanks for the reply but that isn't what my computer looks like. It doesn't have that box thing under the computer. This is what the back of my computer looks like (I didn't see a picture of the back in my owner's manual). I know it's dusty and I just cleaned it after taking the picture.

I'm sorry my reply didn't help you. It's hard to tell by your picture, but what is that behind the stand, is it writing, or open slots?

Here's the video someone else had of the exact same computer I got. The back looks like the one I got. No vent in the back. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RgZXO1THbUM

If you're sure that it has vents that you can clean out your best bet might be to contact HP to see if they can tell you how to access the vents. It's hard to tell from where I'm sitting.

I Looked at the pictures shown on the link you gave for your system and the only possibility I can see is the two slots at the top and bottom of the back of the screen. If they're solid plastic in the slots they can't be for venting but if they have some sort of cloth or something inside they might be passive air cooling (hot air rises). Also your processor is only 25 watts so cooling is not as critical as a higher wattage gaming processor would need.
