LOL!!! OMG you won't believe this.. How do you say it in english? I just had the scariest moment of my life? So I thought I could open my laptop to see if I had any dust. I took the screws and I couldn't see how to open the laptop.. I did a bit of strenght and it opened, just a bit: the keyboard released, but just a bit.. as it is linked to the motherboard by a cable.. but I couldn't take it, I couldn't reach it, unless I broke the keyboard. So, I decided to forget the dust idea and put everything back. Guess what: I was just about to turn on the laptop: NOTHING HAPPENED!! THAT SCARED THE SH** OUT OF ME!! I tried again.. nothing: I pressed the button and it woudn't turn on.. I opened it again and looked for anything disconnected: after a while and after a lot of shivering, I found out that the cable that connects the power button to the motherboard was disconnected: probably because I forced the opening of the laptop. But it was a very very tiny cable and very short.. I got a pair of these long scissor thingys (Idk how to say it in english) and tried to plug it.. I hope it is well plugged now, and doesn't unplug with time now! I mounted the laptop again and VOILLA! Aff.. xD What an afternoon!

Haha, welcome to the world of fixing laptops.

You will learn from your mistakes! I've done a fair few laptop motherboard changes in my time and I hate doing it every time. Fiddly and annoying. The hardest is remembering where everything goes.

Pro Tip: Take pictures along the way and label any screws!
