occasionally, rebooting the computer will result in a nonfunctioning trackpad and nub.
pressing on the keyboard around the UIOP keys/trackpad area and rebooting will occasionally allow them to work however, sometimes the mous only register as a right click.
I have uninstalled all drivers and mouse shows as PS/2 compatible mouse in device manager
so... here is where I am in a dilemma. should I reseat the cable for the touchpad, or both touchpad and keyboard nub cables? would 1 failing cause the other to become inoperable. can I completely unplug one mouse and leave the other one plugged in then flipflop to troubleshoot the issue? how can I tell what is problem.
I just bought this off ebay. pristine shape. I'm assuming it was a refurb job where the person poorly reinstalled connector. he put a warranty sticker on it so I cant bust it open. I can return it, but I pay return shipping. I don't mind repairing it. it would give me something to do lol. but how hard is it to replace the trackpad if that is the issue? thanks!
There is normally a reason items end up on Ebay. Some harmless and others not so..

The HMM contains the needed disassembly instructions, and from there you can see if it's easy enough (or too hard) for you to do.
