Hello,\n\nI have a Compaq EVO N800c laptop, and I had to disassemble it to\nremove clock battery, to erase password lock. Now, I remounted it, and\neverything is OK, except the touchpad and buttons don't work.\n\nWhile unmounting it, I pulled a fragile ribbon cable about in the\nmiddle (ZIF socket I think), but the whole white connector came with\nit. When remounting, I disconnected the ribbon cable from the\nconnector in my hand, and wanted to reseat the connector onto\nmotherboard pin rows, before reconnecting the ribbon cable to\nconnector. Unfortunately, while attempting to reseat it on the pins,\nthe pins bent, and while trying to straighten them up, they got off\ncompletely, so I couldn't connect the ribbon cable.\n\nIs that why touchpad doesn't work? And if so, is there a way to make\nit work again?\n\nThanks for any help.
