Can I turn the computer on while it is apart to test.

I was going to replace the right side fan but noticed there was tons of dust blocking the vents. I want to test the old fan while the computer is apart to see if I should even replace it. Is this ok to do. My keyboard ribbon is still connected currently.

For a short duration you should be OK.

Just be careful not to pull on the ribbon cable and don't touch any metal parts to any components while its running.
