Re: T440p not turning on after clunkpad replacement

I'm no expert here but there is a blue cable and clamp just below the power button, is that still intact? That's the first thing I can think of. Not even sure whether that is power related though.

Re: T440p touchpad replacement gone wrong

Resurrecting a dead post here to state that replacing the motherboard (in the name of a single tiny plastic hinge) has completely fixed the issue - guess it really needs to be clipped in there to make any kind of contact. Took a couple of months to arrive from China, but as soon as I managed to get ...

Re: T440p touchpad replacement gone wrong

Yeah have followed those instructions as far as I can tell - tried the process multiple times with the driver linked in that forum post as well as other drivers recommended (in between removing the old one and restarting to be safe).

Spent a bit of time on it today and though I've really made no progress at all I believe I was able to at least reinstall the original driver.

T440p touchpad replacement gone wrong

After dealing with the clunkpad for two years I finally decided to replace it with the T450 trackpad, which has turned out to be a disastrous decision so far. Hoping someone with similar struggles might be willing to help me troubleshoot. First thing - the clamp that would hold the ribbon cable in p...
