y500 touchpad broken?

2014-02-22, 20:37 PM

Last night I accidently placed my knee on the touchpad. Now it feels like the left and right click buttons were pushed in and there is no click sound just a smooth soft sound. The left button is hard to "unclick" it will highlight and drag everything. What can I do here? Should I disassemble the laptop and try fixing the issue? My warranty finished this month.

Looks like I fixed it. After opening it up using this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TtcFZBvszu0 and messing with the mousepad, but nothing working out. Figured I'd try to put on the electrical tape like the guy in the video did and that worked!

 

Edit: It even works better now!

**bleep**, sorry to hear that, I would open it and see what is the problem only if I was sure of what I was doing or have experience. see if you can push it back in place or perhaps when you open it, you will be able to see if it is damaged or not. I would get a Trackball mouse if you have no other options.
