    How unplug touchpad cable ? Gateway 450ROG

    Hi all ,

    Stumbled upon this froum looking for an answer but the thread I found didn't answer my question .

    Anyone know how to unplug this type of cable ?

    Thanks in advance , I'll post a pic if no one knows this specific model well ( Gateway 450ROG ) , its a ribbon cable , the connector has 2 tabs on the sides but I can't figure exatcly what to do and don't want to break them .

    Gently slide those tabs out (ie pull the left one left and the right one right, level with the motherboard). After that, the cable should come out without any effort at all.

    Putting it back in is the reverse -- put the cable in and hold it in place, then push the tabs inwards.

    Thanks for the help ,

    I already manged to pull the ribbon , I think the "problem" was the connector was already open hence I couldn't open it more .
