About removing the touchpad ribbon:

- My mistake was to try to slide out the little comb black piece that holds the ribbon in position. Instead you should just lift it up gently - it rotates up to free the ribbon - and leave it in place. To insert back the cable you will only need to push the black piece back down.

- Trying to put back the black piece without a clue about what I was doing it started to break down and then simply flew away and disappeared in a creak of the floor. That wasn't much fun.

- Then I noticed an unused connector of the same size about 1 inch to the right and down of the touchpad connector on the MoBo and figured out that it was rotating when I - very gently this time - tried to remove it from its support. I was then successful in putting it into the touchpad slot the way the original was and it now can rotate and seal the ribbon in place.
