    I know this sounds stupid as I'm unaware of your experience, did you reconnect your fan to the motherboard? Does it spin at boot? You'll need to disassemble again and track back, check everything.

    Let me know as I can help more.

    Lol, that guy removed lots of dust. However I haven't removed the motherboard, I just removed the top cover and cleaned the fan using a vacuum cleaner. I will check it tomorrow, though. My fingres hurt at the moment xD. Thank you for your help!

    hope you disconnected the battery and any external power source before all this. Otherwise, it's a brick. Water/liquid is a sure fire way to fry a mobo.....:cool:

    (OP)
    Ok, for another time I've convinced myself that the simplest solutions are the right ones. After I read the The Dev's comment, I said to myself "c'mon you lazy f**k, stop using your brothers computer, go deal with your sh*it"... and so I did. I removed just the keyboard and saw the fan and said to myself "just spin it with a screwdriver" and as always I listened to my instincts. I plugged back the keyboard, put the external power source back and turned it on (haha). When the whole machine started working, it was like it said "THANK YOU" in a very joyful way. I smiled and we both lived happily till the next time.

    So thank you guys, I really appreciate it!

    dustball jammed iin fan stopped the spinning. very common.
    blow from inside out with 70lbs or preassure a few times.. then when u blow from rear in, the dust ball is smaller and wont jam fan.

    if no air preassure available: use bread tie with a small hook made at end to fish out the dust balls and test fan spinning.

    Nooo, it wasn't a dust ball. I clean my laptop's fan regularly, so it can't be that.

    P.S: Sorry for the swears ^^
