Laptop won't turn on after repaste
So yesterday I went to clean my laptop and ended up removing the heatsink to clean the thermal paste (it was in a very bad shape and I had never cleaned it). At one point I spilled some isopropyl alcohol (almost 100% purity) on some wires near the hinge. Figured it wouldn't do harm so I just left it to dry. After that I spent 1h cleaning and reassembling the laptop. When I turned it on, the backlight wouldn't light up. I could see the gigabyte logo but very faintly as if I deactivated the screen via the function key. I managed to restart the computer on windows, but as soon as it turned off, it wouldn't turn on again.
What could have caused this? I didn't disconnect the battery for the cleaning, because I couldn't remove the connector (it was very stiff). Even so I pulled the connector a little, and reassembled the laptop without checking this. Additionally, when I unscrewed, some metal fragments came of the top of the screws, and maybe some tiny parts remained in the mobo (in addition to fragments of thermal pads) even though I brushed everything I could.
