My GBA SP has dust under the screen...

How can I get it out? I dont have one of those 3 sided screw drivers...

So what other options are there. :?

You could pull up the edge of the screen protector with a knife and take a bottle of compressed air, slip the nozzle straw-thing into the corner then just blow all the dust into the opposite corner where it won't be seen.

ughh..i hate it when this happens to my PSP. I open it up, take a mini fan and blow it off, while quikly closing it up before more dust enters

Is there any way to do this without opening it? if not, how can you prevent it from happening?

Prying it open shouldn't hurt anything, unless you violently stab your system :roll: . Opening it is the only way to clean out the dust. To keep out dust the only way would be to seal all the cracks and seems which would hurt the system.
