By the way once you get to the fan you can usually put 1 drop of 3n1 oil in the bearing side of the fan and it will work again.
To access the bearing just peal off the sticker or it may have a small plug .

You may want to check the cable for the mousepad.It might not be seated properly since dissembling the laptop.
Here is a great guide for disassembly for the L355D model
