Touchpad doesn't work after front panel replacement
My ASUS R510JK (also known as X550 in most parts of the World) had really messy front panel so I have decided to replace it. I have ordered the part and installed the touchpad from the previous panel to the new one. After I have mounted the new front panel and powered up the laptop the touchpad didn't work. I have checked the ribbon cable and it seemed like it is quite messy to, so I have trimmed it - no luck, still not working. I have ordered another ribbon cable, but it was to short to connect it and fully close the laptop so I have checked the touchpad without fully closing the front panel - still wasn't working. How can one be sure that the touchpad has broken? Everything is connected and fits well, under device settings I can se the yellow (!) next to the TOUCHPAD. I have tried to update the drivers / ATKPACKAGE and so on - still no luck.
My question is - how could I broke the thouchpad just by mounting it to different front panel? Are those parts that delicate? Will replacing the touchpad with new work out based on the things I have written?
I will be very grateful for any feedback.
Is this a good question?
