Broken touchpad connector

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.

No, it's not the only way, if you have an unused PCMCIA port in your notebook. The width of the PCMCIA port is about the height of a credit-card, and the height of that port is about the thickness of a few credit-cards.

Purchase a PCMCIA adapter that has two or three USB ports.
Insert the PCMCIA adapter into the slot,
and connect your USB device to one of the USB ports.

The touchpad does not work anymore. I have to


Try and go to manufactures website go to support section and try and get your drivers for touchpad. If that don't work it's possibly connection on the tape that connects it to the mother board somewhere or whole touchpad circuit board which wouldn't be good. If trick with drivers don't work and you are not willing to take laptop apart you will need a service men to deal with it. Thnaks and good luck

KK266 mother board (IWill) need a wiring diagram, usb is not being identified


Antec doesn't make mother boards, they make enclosures. The standard USB connection on the board is a 2x5 pin connector, with 1 pin missing. The end that has the missing pin, is the end that the cable shield is attached to.

Broken screen


Hey how are you!!!

You replaced the broken LCD screen in your laptop with a new screen. Does this sound like your problem? Let’s find out what could be wrong and how you can fix it.
First of all, I assume that your new LCD screen is compatible with the old one. Different screens require different video cables. Make sure you new screen is compatible with your laptop.
OK, let’s say you accidentally damaged the LCD screen in your laptop. A part of the screen still works fine but you cannot use it like that so you decided to replace the screen yourself.

Her is some instructions to follow.

Before you start to panic, check all cable connections again. Check connection between the video cable, LCD screen and inverter board. Reconnect cables just in case.
screen-not-working-3.jpg Take a closer look at the connection between the video cable and LCD screen. It’s possible you accidentally pulled the video cable from the connector during the screen installation.
screen-not-working-4.jpg The video cable has to be seated properly, all the way down.
screen-not-working-5.jpg Also, on some older LCD screens there are very thin pins inside the connector. Take a look inside the connector, make sure there are no damaged (bent) pins.
You can straighten bent pins with a very small screwdriver but this procedure requires a lot of patience and concentration.
Fortunately, most newer LCDs have a different type of connector, without fragile pins inside.
screen-not-working-6.jpg OK, you have reseated all connectors and cannot see anything wrong but the new screen still is not working. What’s next?

Remove the new screen and connect the old one. If the old one works properly (except the damaged area) but the new one is dead, apparently the new screen is defective and has to be replaced.
Hopefully it has warranty.
Here’s another scenario. The new screen kinda works. You can see a very faint image but there is no backlight.
If that’s the case, disconnect the new screen from the inverter board and plug in the old screen instead, as it shown on the picture below. If the backlight inside the old screen lights up, apparently the new screen has defective backlight lamp and has to be replaced.

Didn't work


Archerr, what did u try?, I don't know, I can't help u! as per 3.5 floppy, check how u connected the ribbon cable.Pin#1 on mother board to red or colored wire on ribbon(pin#1) the pin#1 [red or colored] that goes to the floppy is usually connected FACING towards the power connector [usually 4 pins in line, almost always on the left side of floppy. the connection to h/d(hard drive)on the board looks the same.Usually h/d#1 & h/d#2 are side by side and the floppy connector usually is a distance away by itself.
Get a bootable 3.5"[with ANY operating system] and boot up with the floppy, you'll will know when it works.Then get back with" Tried that still nothing..."

Mother Board connection


Go to the site below. Its a manual for the 800/i65GV group. Go to page 67 and zoom in. You'll get a nice look where everything goes. Two rows of pins. Upper row and bottom row. Real close to each other. Do not place connectors up to down. Connect only left to right.
The reset connector has two pins. One will be white or black. These are - grounds. So connect it to the bottom row onto the most right two pins. Moving to your left. Skip one pin. Take the Power Switch a two pin connector. Remember Black & White is ground & ground goes to your right for both rows of Mb pins.
http://dlsvr03.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/sock478/p4p800/e1324_p4p800.pdf
Go to IDE_LED next. Its the last two pins towards your most left of the bottom row of pins. Move to the upper row & the power LED. Same as the bottom row keping the grounds to your right. Lastly is the speaker. Its connector holds four pins but you only use two. One in each end.

Good luck & please vote....
