    I have a 1.25ghz aluminum powerbook g4... I have a slightly older non working powerbook and since my left trackpad button does not work i would like to transfer the trackpad from the non working pb to the working one. any advice?

    Do not force any connections In or out of its plug. Follow as many guides as possible. Use an egg carton to hold and separate your screws.

    And as the poster above me said, don't screw up.

    Draw diagrams of your machine too. It'll help you with the screws.

    take photos before each step, then you can refer to these pictures when reassembling.

    Is it a Titanium PowerBook? If so, then the trackpads might not be compatible.
