Asus Vivobook - Misaligned trackpad

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 


My trackpad is misaligned by about .5mm. This is MUCH more annoying than it sounds/looks. The left click is noticeably louder and more..."clicky" than the right one, unless clicked near the center.

I don't remember it ever being like this before, but I don't see how it could just happen out of nowhere.

A quick Google search shows that people have had the same problem with their Macbooks. It can apparently be fixed by tightening a screw, but I'm not sure how similar my trackpad is to an Apple one.

Has anyone ever seen this problem before?

EDIT: Upon further examination, it's just the lower right corner that sinks in. The upper right corner is flush with the upper left.

Asus has gotten really cheap with their laptops and customer service. This does not surprise me.

It's a really solid laptop other than the trackpad issue (which, like I said, didn't exist until recently).
