What is wrong with it?

Re: Repair click button

The left click button of the built-in touch pad feels like the spring has either broken or is out of socket (if there is such).  I want to repair it myself but I don't know how to disassemble it and can't find any written instructions on the internet.  HP will not help me.  Please help me or direct me to where I can get help.  Thanks.

Hi,

I see your laptop is not in warranty considering its generation.

HP no longer supplies most of the parts for your laptop. You might have to search to find another one of the same  laptop series to scavenge the parts from. That is what I do for an old Compaq 1400 laptop I own from 1995. It still works!

 

 I suggest using a laptop or normal optical mouse to achieve the same funtions as the touchpad keys. Sorry to bear bad news.

Re: Repair click button

Thanks for your advice, but can you tell me how I can dismantle the touch pad to see if I can repair it?  Is there a web site I can got to to get a repair manual for this laptop?

Re: Repair click button

Hi,

Go to insidemylaptop.com or youtube and search for a similar laptop. There you can find generic and sometimes specific video and written tutorials on disassembly and repair of various laptop brands. Look for the same basic series as your HP/Compaq laptop.  This will require patience, (lots of it :smileyhappy:) a steady hand, gentle disassemble, a plastic box (for the tiny screws and a jewelers philips screwdriver. When disassembling the laptop do it without force or breakage will result. Of course you assume all risk of disassembling your laptop. :smileywink:

Re: Repair click button

In order to get to the touch pad you need to follow this unassambling steps:

1 Remove top panel (containing power button and one-touch-buttons)

2 Remove the keyboard

3 Remove all screws at the bottom 

4 The top cover should be free for inspection (carefully disconnect the keyboard and mouspad ribon cables)

 

Fix as necessary

 

For more guides use this pdf from hp.

I do have 2 laptops of this model not working. One has a power connector problem and the other one I think is the bios, sometimes starts and sometimes it doesnt.
