So not even sure this is the right forum since i'm not even sure what the problem is. But long story short I dropped my Lenovo Edge E420 (5 feet onto concrete). The only damage was cosmetic (screen bezel, palm rest, hinges, top case) anyways I ordered the parts and replaced them. I replaced the top case and bezel since my new palmrest hadn't come in yet. When I hooked everything back up (including my broken but functional palmrest/touchpad assembly the touchpad, fingerprint scanner, and trackpoint no longer function.
I hoped it was just a damaged part so I waited till the new palm rest came in. It did today, and I replaced it but it didn't rectify the problem. The weird thing is the trackpoint and touchpad do not share cables and the keyboard works fine. The touchpad/ fingerprint. trackpoint is not showing up in the device manager or bios. I'm running 64 bit Windows 7. I tried updating my synaptics drivers, updating bios but can't get anything to work, or even show that its connected. I'm almost thinking it has to be a software thing since the touchpad and trackpoint are not physically connected. Help? Thanks!
