Airport/camera/bluethooth not working + CPU and fan overworking!

Following the steps in one of the guides I managed to replace the glass in my macbook succesfully. Although when I started the computer I saw for some reason it wasn't recognizing the airport card, the bluethooth or the camera. Also the Fan is running really hot and I can't run any application that consumes some CPU power (like logic in my case...) I think it might be down to the cable that conects the wireless card/bluethooth camera to the motherboard as it seemes to be damaged, but would that also explain the erratic behaviour of the fan? is there any way to prove this? any hints to what this might be?




Thanks for your answer!

I think I found the answer. I opened up again to inspect the cable and found out one of the pins of the camera cable was bent, causing a short-circuit. If i disconect it everything runs smoothly (apart from the airport/camera/bluethoot). I have already ordered a new cable and hopefully all should be back to normal after installing it!

Open up the case again and patch the damage with silicone or electrician's tape if possible. Partially reassemble (don't put back all the screws, or screw them down like you're holding an Elephant - finger tight is good enough). Test If the problem goes away you have your answer.

While the box is open recheck all connections, especially the RAM you may have one loose.

If this answer is acceptable please remember to return and mark it.
