Clearing The Bios and Cleaning the CPU Fan of my Old Laptop

Recently, I am disk partitioning my laptop from the disk management through the third party software EASEUS. I tried to move the files from one drive to another drive partition, the computer found errors and stopped working from the time I restarted the computer. What? Are you kidding me. I tried to figure it out to solve the issue. I made 2 attempts to solve the issue but failed until  I decided to open the laptop. I found it so dusty especially the fan yet the issue was not about the dust inside. I reconnected every cable as well including the hard drive, fan and the so-dimm memory. I found the CMOS battery, reset it and rebooted the system. When the system worked fine, I reassembled everything. Another problem appeared when I turned the Windows on. No internet, I accessed the command prompt, I pinged the address. I released and renewed the IP and flushed the DNS as well but nothing worked.  I went back, then reinstalled and updated the network drivers but still no connection. I cleared the cache, deleted the browsing history and it worked. Now my laptop CPU fan is cleaned and worked perfectly. Also, I checked and disabled the updates for this Windows OS 3 years ago. My 9 years old mate still works fine until now. I am planning to assemble a rig (only if I have extra money) with virtualization and install a VLAN for penetration testing lab. Happy me!
