I agree with Mr Serra - you wouldn't need to touch the Motherboard/hard drive.

Jane Armstrong - Contestar

crazy! lol there is no need for you to remove the motherboard just to replace the touch pad :D

Where can I buy replacement touch pad?

Nin Kasi - Contestar

People, if you take just two seconds to think about it, the process described is plainly one that shows how to remove ALL the parts, and all you have to do is take note of the ones that are relevant to what you want to do, and ignore the rest.

Can't believe you are whining about being given extra FREE information that you might want in the future.

Too quick to criticise.
