I have a Lenovo T400s that was full of dust, so because of high temperature and slow performance, I decided to clean the cooler all by myself.
After carefully removing every single part, I managed to reach the cooler and clean it. I've successfully reattached every single piece of hardware, with temperature now reaching a maximum of 70 degrees Celsius in high-performance mode. Still, there are a bunch of issues that I'm yet to repair:
1. The overall performance of the laptop is slower than before, with the browser and all the other apps clearly slowed down by something, even after starting the laptop.
2. Sometimes, whenever I plug in the power cord, the laptop freezes all of a sudden. It happened to me several times either when the OS is loading or when I was working on the laptop. After I cleaned the laptop, I got an error saying "Plugged in, not recharging," but I've fixed it by removing and reconnecting the battery.
3. The Bluetooth adapter doesn't seem to work anymore. Whenever I try to connect a Bluetooth mouse, the laptop freezes.
Any idea on the source of these problems and how could I fix them? Thanks in advance.
I'm running Winodws 8 and the standard hardware configuration of the laptop, with no upgrades.

I would probably make sure all the connections in the computer are snug. This would just make sure that the connections are good.
If the computer is running slow when concerning programs try and run disk defragmenter and disk cleanup. You can search for these in the start menu search bar. They would make it easier for your computer to load some information. If the computer is freezing when connecting a mouse then I would uninstall and re-install the Bluetooth drivers for the computer.

If the computer continues having issues within the Operating System and being slow then I would look into resetting the OS to factory Defaults.
Hope this helps,
