Hello everyone!
I ran into an issue while changing keyboard on my Asus X555L. i took the aluminium tape from touchpad completely away! which i maybe shouldnt do cuz after putting it back on it didnt quite stick well and didnt work at all... Now my question is shouldnt the device work even with the aluminium tape off? Because its not even in device manager. And is there anyway to make it connected different way? Thank you very much, been strugling with this for a while.

It seems like i did, that ribbon cable is needed for the touchpad to work at all? if I buy some of that cable is it possible to just glue it back there?
Thank you :)

oh soo its only a tape? damn and i though it had some function there :D the touchpad worked alright until i got that tape off. but maybe I really messed something up with the connector. I tried to reseat it like 10 times but notebook didn't detect it at all...

Okay thank you. Ill try to test the touchpad in different notebook and try to replace the wire and let know. if it won't work then the touchpad is probably dead. I just really wasn't sure about the tape because its soo strangely placed

ground point that's what i though too... that could be the issue with not detecting at all. any idea what I could put there instead of the tape?
