Changed the E520 touchpad/fingerprint cable with a touchpad only cable now the touchpad doesnt work?

2014-01-07, 20:53 PM

Hi All

Ive had my E520 open to replace the DC power adapter twice and the cable for the touchpad/finger scanner became unusable.

I looked everywhere for the cable to do both the touchpad and finger scanner with no success.

So I found a touchpad only cable (so not split in two) but now the touchpad doesnt work at all

Ive reopened the laptop to make sure the new cable was seated correctly which it is but no joy the laptop doesnt recognise the touchpad

Ive uninstalled the drivers downloaded the latest ones but laptop doesnt recognise the T/P in Device manager so Im stumped

Can anyone give me any ideas of what Im doing wrong (and any clues on how to find the cable that will do both the Tp and Finger scanner


Thanks in advance
