Hi,

 

I have another issue with this Dell Inspiron 11z 1121 other than the screen not working wright.

 

The owner of this laptop spilled some coffee on the onbaord touchpad just before bringing it to me and since then the touchpad doesn't work

 

I opened the laptop up and the touchpad looks fine, it is all dry and I don't see any obvious damage.

 

So, is there a way to fix this issue, replace the touchpad and the right and left clickers?

 

It looks like the touchpad courser part is glued to the under part of the where you move your finder across to move the curser.

 

Meaning that it looks like it might be a difficult part to replace? So, can the touchpad part be replaced? Is it worth it?

 

So far, I suggested to the owner to purchase a USB mouse, thinking it to be the less expensive fix for the situation.

 

Any suggestions?

 

Thanks,

 

John

From the service manual it looks like the trackpad is integrated into the palm rest.

Double Tap in the upper left corner of the track pad.  Does a light on the pad come on or go off?  I've had users accidentally disable the touch pad that way.

 

Odds are it has had too much coffee and would need to be replaced.
