Based on information provided, it seems that the issue might be with bluetooth driver or even with the driver for the function keys(Fn)

The best option would be to re-install the bluetooth and the function key drivers.

Please let me know if you need detailed information about the driver installation procedure.

Hope this helps..

Download "Connectifyme". It is a free version with other powerful options in paid version.
But keep in mind. You either need 2 wireless adapter, 1 for internet connectivity and 1 for hotspot.
Or, you connect to the internet via LAN port and wireless adapter for wireless hotspot.
Or, connect to the internet via LAN port to a wireless modem and hotspot with your builtin wireless adapter.
Let me know if you need more info.

It sounsd like your GPU may be BGA chip and would require a re-flow/re-ball if your laptop shows graphical distortion on both monitors.

However I would first try taking the laptop apart again and double check you have connected everything properly.

Reboot check taskManager you CPU is probably running at %100
you'll have to disable unnecessary start up items that are using up you're resources. Also you may need more memory.
to check start up run (msconfig) and click tab (startup) untick anything unnecessary.

If you wish to FORMAT your hard drive so you can re install the OS.
Put your Windows disc into the CD/DVD drive, boot the computer and press F2 (if that does not work try CTRL+ALT and enter) to enter the bios. Change the boot order to boot from the CD drive first.

Follow the onscreen instructions to Install the OS, you should get the option to delete the existing partitions and then to FORMAT.
