Thanks I'll put it back together and see if the touchpad works. I'll be extra careful with the ribbon connectors next time, but it's hard to tell sometimes whether they flip open or just slide out. They should make them all the same!

Alright, I put it all back together and it's working properly, including the touchpad I couldn't figure out how to remove the fan but I probably will if I look at some guides. It still makes the noise but cleaning it will hopefully fix it. Thanks for the help ICit2lol

I shone a light through the vents and I saw quite a bit of dust in there.

Ok mate just be careful cleaning those fins in that rad I use pipe cleaners to loosen the crud from the outside then blow out from the fan side with a compressed air can - but do be careful to hold the fan blades still as the air will spin the fan in excess of what the bearing is designed to take and may wreck it.

Personally I use a small piece of sheer curtain material taped over the fan inlet on this machine (Toshiba L550) to catch the crud before it can get near the fan and / or rad. But any fine weave material will do as long as you can see through it
