View Full Version : G73 touchpad fix pictures

01-17-2012, 12:13 AM
Does anyone have before and after pictures of the back of the touchpad, where the tape, foil, glue has been removed.
I have had the erratic pointer, touchpad operation and finally searched online for the fix. I am going to venture into this and hope not to break the audio connection, as that seems to be where most problems have happened.
Also I read there are some updates that give you two finger scroll, which would be nice, but don't want want to download something that would screw up what works now. Does anyone have the proper link for that? G73Sw is the model I have.

There's a long G73 touchpad thread (it eventually morphed into a G73/74 thread), where people posted images of their G73 TP cleanups as that method developed. I think it's this thread (http://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?883-Troubleshooting-ASUS-G73-Touchpad-Problems)....you'll have to browse around to find the photos. IIRC, it was last Spring, about March or April.

Some people removed just the tape and residue around the edges, while others removed the foil backing as well.
