Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad T43 Notebook ?

T-43 Laptop - Screen freezes, mouse freezes, all functions stop..

\015 T-43 Laptop - Screen freezes, mouse freezes and all functions stop working unless I apply very firm pressure to the touch pad area. If I do so, the laptop boots up and all functions work OK. It is not practical to operate it in this manor. I am not certain what it is, but there is a 2 " long plug in board located directly under the touch pad (maybe ram), just above the cpu chip on the mother board. I replaced the touch pad with a used one but it did not make a difference. My guess is that either the 2" long plug in board is faulty or something on the motherboard at or near the cpu chip is faulty. The pressure from squeezing or pushing on the touch pad must flex something which allows the laptop to work correctly. Any Ideas on exactly what to replace and at what cost?\015

The Touchpad is pressure sensitive, you can program the Touchpad's functionality. Go to Control Panel, click, to open Mouse Properties. Click the Device settings (block), select the Settings button; after the Touchpad Wizard appear! "View the (left) "Select an item" pane, and click to start the Touchpad's actions." Follow all the instructions carefully. I hope this Fix it
