Question about Advent Netbook
I have an advent 5401 laptop, its over 1 year old and the touchpad is a little worn, the left click button does not work and i have to tap the touchpad itself instead, is there any way i can fix the button myself?
Had a similar problem a couple of months ago, The left button started playing up, not working with every mouse click, it gradualy got worse till it was nearly unusable.. I suspected that the microswitch under the silver button had some dirt in it. After taking a deep breath I removed the battery and the screws that hold the case lower and upper halves together and was able to seperate the case front by about 3/4 of an inch. Then using a contact cleaner Servisol Super 10 and supplied flexible straw I squirted cleaner into both mouse click buttons. After waiting for cleaner to evaporate and resecuring case halves and replacing battery I switched on .... The button works 100%..
