What did you use to dust it off? Canned air can cause liquid damage, compressed air can have water in the line or be too strong. A vacuum can give of a static discharge. I use an electric blower, and a tooth brush.

Update (12/27/2017)

Also try unplugging the laptop and removing the battery and holding the power button down to discharge the electricity.

I used a feather duster to dust off the whole thing and a toothbrush for the fans

i fixed it by unplugging the battery and then re-plugging it again. you're gonna have to unscrew the bottom of the laptop to do that.
