MIDDLE section of TRACKPAD slow and erratic

I'm trying to troubleshoot my friends macbook Pro trackpad. The middle section is slow and does not function properly, but the top and bottom section work fine. i tried replacing the trackpad cable with one of mine and it stayed the same so i replaced the trackpad with my white trackpad from my macbook 13" and it worked just fine in hers. Is there a way to fix a trackpad that is not working properly?

The older plastic trackpads do loose their tracking unlike the newer glass version. Sadly, it sounds like its time for a new track pad.

Don't all the Macbook pros have the glass trackpad?


No, both the older MacBooks & MacBook Pro's had plastic trackpads.
