Question about HP Pavilion ze1115 Notebook
While working on my laptop I pulled the cable connector off the pins on the mother board that connects the touchpad. I tried to push it back over the pins but the pins broke off. Anybody got any ideas on how to repair other than soldering the ribon cable directly to the motherboard. Im using a wireless usb mouse right but would like to fix the touch pad.If I solder it, it is a 12 wire ribbon cable, I think I can figure out the way it should go back.
I suggest you replace the motherboard. A recent search on ebay turned up three ranging in price from $18 to $85. Soldering a motherboard by hand has a very high failure rate. It's easy to bridge or scratch something and fry the board. You could of course try to do it and if it fails get a replacement board.
