W510 Trackpad not working after replacing system board.

2010-06-22, 12:17 PM

My system board was replaced due to a bad BIOS flash.  After replacing the system board, the engineer start to power up and realise the trackpad was not working.  I try reformatting the OS again and re-install all the drivers back.  It still doesnt work.  Need help....

More than likely the cable from the Touchpad/Keyboard bezel assembly was not attached correctly to the planar during the repair action.

 

You would need to remove the keyboard to check this cable.  Refer to the HMM for instructions on how to do this.  Don't worry....it is easy.

 

Regards

Hi,

 

Yes.  The engineer came down to my office and replace the system board today. I'm so happy to have my w510 back.
