So I realized my touchpad mouse isn't working on my laptop and when I opened it up (or tried to because I'm scared of dislodging more cables) I realized the touchpad cable is disconnected to the base--I think I'm using the correct terms. Anyway, I can't seem to push the cable back in. How do I fix this?

How did this happen? Short and simple...I dropped my computer. There are other things needed fixing too but one thing at a time please @.@ I'm a broke single mother with a child that has more medical bills then a hypochondriac patient. DIY fixes are all I got. So please help?
 

 

Edit:IDK, maybe I'm not doing it right. Should it be able to slide in easily? (lol that's what she said) I can't seem to find a cable lock or something but then again the tab and the crack I'm looking to see everything is small and my hand can hardly fit to fix the problem.

Hi, Since there is more than one kind of connector used in laptops, to be able to help, You will need to provide the make and model of the Laptop.

 

Thanks

Roger

Thank you! I saw those video's earlier on youtube and fixed it myself already ^_^ Once I learned how to open it, the rest was easy to figure out. Apparently all I had to do was get in the right angle to unlock the base so the tab would go in easily. Then I fixed the charging problem as well. Saved me a lot on money, yay! Thank you guys for the reply's!
