Yeah Kevin I have been working on a little thing I call a "wrinkle" - that is an old English term we used to use for a tip for fixing something or a way around something that isn't strictly conventional. I have taken some shots of my new disassembly set up and am going to post soon.
That darn screw well it was right next to the wireless adaptor and so virtually near the centre of the board the strap I think earths the touch pad - which I never use but if they made the screws gold coloured or just left them silver instead of jet black ones dopes like me wouldn't miss the things. I reckon I can fix the earth problem with some fine wire if need be or I might get lucky and get solder to stick to that strap.
LOL!! Well at least I don't have a a woman in my life anymore so don't have to worry re the mess and the "battle zone" - you know the odd sock or three lying around
