My model is a g3-571. I wanted to clean both fans out, which i did.. did everything as expected, disassembled both fans and swiped the dust off the interior vent. and tried to remove the dust from the fan blades. all was fine, blew it a bit. not too much, as i'm sure these fans can handle huge rotations anyway. nothing i didn't usually do. Also while this was ongoing, the battery was still plugged in, if that matters.

Then, i put it back together, and the only fan working was the CPU fan. I wondered why, so i figured it was the way the GPU fan wire head was put in, so i flipped the head on both sides and neither worked. I do remember while trying out different sides of the wire, i heard a little pop, and not sure which one it came from or whether it was anything electrical or just me tampering with it. Either way, this sucks as i game quite a bit and i hope this is nothing serious as surely this laptop can take a little tampering with. What is this!
