After removing the palm rest and reinstalling it (trying to fix a non working mouse pad/tracking issues, which failed too)
I'm now with another problem.
This laptop is falling apart.
My monitor now does not display anything, everything stays black. The backlid works.
If I connect it to the tv via hdmi out, it will display properly on the tv, and when I try to set multi monitor set up to try to force the screen to wake up, nothing happens.
Is there any cable related to the display I might have broken in the palm rest area!?
laptop is a thinkpad sl510 with intel graphics. 4gb ram. Not sure if you need some model number?
Im using windows 7, but the same problem occurs in latest kubuntu
Good point stating the obvious hehe

Starting a new thread and asking questions without stating which ThinkPad you own may result in you being asked about which ThinkPad you own, or worse still, members who may be in a position to offer advice ignoring and not answering your post.
Maybe you could post or add to your signature, (my settings > personal information > signature), which ThinkPad you own.

I did unplug the palm rest entirely. (2 ribbon cables I believe?) I couldn't see if those were related to the lcd from what the manual shows, it seemed not. If they are, then I'm pretty sure that's my problem.
I don't believe they sell separetely though, only the whole palm rest area!?
How can I know which one is for the lcd?
Thanks for your help!
