    Hello People

    I've searched for hours now with google but I didn't find anything useful about either how a Trackpoint works or how one of these can be repaired.

    I'm doing this because I want to get my old Compaq LTE5300 working neatly again. It's not as useful as a laptop rightnow because of a broken trackpoint and a broken battery. I've already found a tutorial how to get NiCd and NiMh Batteries working again. Going to try that tomorrow.
    Well, there's another possibility for getting a TrackPoint to that old Compaq:
    I've got a broken Toshiba with Trackpoint as well (Motherboard or Screen or both gone). That Trackpoint works well with the Compaq. Only problem is that I can't use the connectors to put that Trackpoint anywhere outside the case. Question: How do I prolong foil wrapped cables?

    Maybe I'm writing a bit confused, but that's only because it's late here in CH.

    Greetings Hans
