Introduction

This guide will show you how to replace the trackpad in your 13 inch Lenovo Yoga 900 (900-13ISK). The trackpad acts as the mouse, allowing the user to move the cursor around the screen and click to interact with the interface on their computer. Common symptoms indicating your trackpad is malfunctioning are a failure to register clicks, trackpad drift, or registering multiple clicks for just one click. If the cursor doesn’t respond to movement on the trackpad and clicks are not registering, you should check that your trackpad is not disabled in the computer’s settings before performing a replacement.

Be sure to unplug and completely turn off your device before you start working.
