BLUE SPARK FROM CAPACITOR NEAR MY RAMS HEAT SHEILD

I have a legion 5i. So basically i was cleaning my laptops fans and decided to check on my rams. Removed the heat sink shield and check on them. They seemed fine so i put the shield back. Used a screwdriver to fix the hooks that kept the sink in place. Unfortunately my screwdriver got in touch with a capacitor and a blue spark emerged 😭 booted up my laptop and everything seemed to be normal so i am pretty much worried if anything would happen to my laptop.

shorting capacitors absolutely can happen, and it sounds like you did.

 

Did it kill it?  Unknown, without testing gear, you can't really tell.

 

Also:  There are usually components on the board that aren't 100% used all the time, and the system may run fine without it, even if it did die.
