The Touchpad was perched safely on the tabletop while I ate my breakfast. When I got up to place the dishes in the sink, my cat brushed up against the Touchpad sending it tumbling off the table and onto its face. The digitizer was a crazed mess, but the Touchpad still kept chugging.
I ordered a replacement digitizer and followed the repair guide online, using a plastic spudger that came with the digitizer. It was useless. So I ordered the metal spudger set here and used it instead.
The guide was clear but didn't alert me to how long it was going to take. It took me 2 hours to perform the repair - most of the time spent separating the digitizer from the LCD screen. I used methylated spirits sparingly to help dissolve the glue, but it was still a big job.
