WTB: synaptics touchpad ribbon cable

    Hi all,
    I own an HP pavilion ze1230 laptop (about 3.5 years old). Recently my
    synaptics touchpad stopped working and I trapped it to a pesky little
    cable with worn-out conductors.

    It's a flat 12-conductor ribbon cable, AWM 2896 (80C), about 3 inches
    long. They're made by Sumitomo:

    They're impossible to find online, the only place I found that sold
    them was out of stock. If anybody has a busted laptop with this cable,
    or happens to have a spare, I'd like to buy it off you! Or any tips on
    where to buy it would be good too. Thanks a lot,

    Dan Lenski

  3. The biggest single mistake that untrained users make when they attempt
    laptop repairs is not knowing about ZIF sockets (ZIF = zero insertion
    force). The lack of such knowledge often destroys entire laptops.
