Answer to: No wifi or bluetooth after replacing optical drive and trackpad.I decided to try this: I figured the camera cable also carried the signal for the bt and wifi. It does.

Answer to: computer extremely slow, not a easy fixHere are some ideas off the top of my head (I've been a Mac girl for over 15 years, and I used to work at an authorized Apple Repair Center: Do you have external hard drives attached? This can slow your computer down, especially if they are crammed full and you don't have them excluded from Spotlight. Check your RAM. Read this http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1509 and do some googling for "intel mac ram test." Did you migrate from an earlier Mac to this one? You may have some legacy software that's messing with things. If none of these help, try this. Clone (love Carbon Copy Cloner) your drive onto an external hard drive, and then do a from scratch install of Mavericks and see if your speed is any better. I hope this helps! :)
