Touchpad
The built-in touchpad is a PS/2-compatible pointing device that senses movement on its surface. This cursor
responds to your finger movements on the touchpad. In addition, the two click buttons provide the same
functionality as a computer mouse, while the scroll key enables easy up and down scrolling in documents and
web pages.
The touchpad is located in the middle of the palm rest area, providing maximum comfort and efficiency.
Touchpad Basics
Use the touchpad as follows:
T
Slide your finger over the surface of the touchpad to control the movement of the cursor. Tap the
touchpad to perform selection and execution functions.
T
Press the left (1) and right (3) buttons to perform selection and execution functions, just as you
would use the buttons on a computer mouse.

Check the Battery Pack
To check the battery pack, do the following:
From Software:
1.
Check out the Power Management in control Panel
2.
In Power Meter, confirm that if the parameters shown in the screen for Current Power Source and Total
Battery Power Remaining are correct.
3.
Repeat the steps 1 and 2, for both battery and adapter.
4.
This helps you identify first the problem is on recharging or discharging.
From Hardware:
1.
Power off the computer.
2.
Remove the battery pack and measure the voltage between battery terminals 1(+) and 6(ground). See the
following figure
3.
If the voltage is still less than 7.5 Vdc after recharging, replace the battery.
To check the battery charge operation, use a discharged battery pack or a battery pack that has less than 50%
of the total power remaining when installed in the computer.
If the battery status indicator does not light up, remove the battery pack and let it return to room temperature.
Re-install the battery pack.
If the charge indicator still does not light up, replace the battery pack. If the charge indicator still does not light
up, replace the DC/DC charger board.
Touchpad Check
If the touchpad doesn’t work, do the following actions one at a time to correct the problem. Do not replace a
non-defective FRU:
1.
After rebooting, run Tracking Pad PS2 Mode Driver. For example, run Syn touch driver.
2.
Run utility with the PS/2 mouse function and check if the mouse is working.
3.
If the the PS/2 mouse does not work, then check if the main board to switch board FPC is connected O.K.
4.
If the main board to switch board FPC is connected well, then check if the FCC on touch pad PCB
connects properly.
5.
If the FFC on touch pad PCB connects properly, then check if LS851 JP1 Pin6=5V are pulese. If yes, then
replace switch board. If no, then go to next step.
6.
Replace touch pad PCB.
7.
If the touch pad still does not work, then replace FPC on Track Pad PCB.
After you use the touchpad, the pointer drifts on the screen for a short time. This self-acting pointer movement
can occur when a slight, steady pressure is applied to the touchpad pointer. This symptom is not a hardware
problem. No service actions are necessary if the pointer movement stops in a short period of time.

Intermittent Problems
Intermittent system hang problems can be caused by a variety of reasons that have nothing to do with a
hardware defect, such as: cosmic radiation, electrostatic discharge, or software errors. FRU replacement
should be considered only when a recurring problem exists.
When analyzing an intermittent problem, do the following:
66
1.
Run the diagnostic test for the system board in loop mode at least 10 times.
2.
If no error is detected, do not replace any FRU.
3.
If any error is detected, replace the FRU. Rerun the test to verify that there are no more errors.
