Now the laptop is dead again with a broken hinge and the display was also shaky which I showed to a laptop repair shop here. I have been told that along with the hinge, the LCD also needs to be replaced now. I do not want to spend a penny on this old rat.
What I was thinking about is getting another laptop (used one this time) and use the parts (HDD, DVDRW, charger and may be battery too) from this SL400.
Can someone tell me if it would be possible to use the battery and charger of SL400 in T61/T400/T410?
Concerning batteries, the ThinkPad Battery 41/+/++ will not be usable in the T400 or T410. It should however be usable in the NON widescreen 14" T61, T/R/W500 and T60 as per http://support.lenovo.com/en_GB/product ... MIGR-67501

He has told me that the touchpad cable is not available anywhere, so I would have to procure it on my own and give it to him so that the touchpad can be made to work. Someone please help me out with it.
What's the part number for the touchpad cable? Can someone tell me the website or a store in the US or India where I can buy touchpad cable for SL400? I am in India but can buy the part in the United States through a friend who is coming to India in a few weeks. Thank you.
Thanks. So, how and where to buy the cable from? What do I ask for, the complete touchpad with cable? What's the part number/reference I need to give and where to buy from in the US or India? Any pointers?ZaZ wrote:I don't think there's a part number for the touch pad cable. The cable would be attached to the palm rest where the touch pad resides.

As far as a source is concerned, you could try eBay or Goggling the relevant part number.

I ordered a SL400 as a part machine, mainly for the HDD and RAM, came with a broken hinge.
Today I finally got into replacing the hinge and this was one of the more diffucult ones to do.
There was about 3x as much screws to take out just to take off the hinge compared to a T60!
And the connectors, I spent half an hour trying to get one of the ribbon that connects to the volume and toolbox.
Nabbed some tape to make sure it doesn't get loose, it douesn't have a typical "plug" and the unit just broke off.
The keyboard bezel doesn't just go around the keyboard, it goes under it as well!
Not as servicable as I thought it would be.
