    HELP !!!! Laptop Mousepad

    Has anyone ever taken the mousepad off of a laptop and use it for a mousepad on a desktop?

    I read somewhere once that someone had done this and had the wiring for it. I have searched here on Mp3Car, but can't seem to find anything on it anywhere.

    i've done it......its pretty easy.....depeneding on the touchpad component you have. If its standard the wires match up the same as they would on a regular ps2 mouse. There are 4 wires, you can look at it and usually tell that the biggest one is (usually) ground, and the second biggest is power. The other two are data.....if you find the pinout of a PS2 mouse....you can can wire up the power and ground, and then you have a 50% chance of getting the two datas right, if your wrong, no harm done.....just swap the two datas......just make sure you get the power and ground right.

    Cheap touchpads... is the thread discussing the laptop touchpad I did. The actual pinout is likely to be different than yours though. Post #9 has my quick description of methodology (nothing fancy ) which you might find helpful.
