> I passed your question to my husband who is a computer & business
> consultant. He writes as follows, "I am familiar with these flex cable
> problems on other laptops. Usually it has to do with attempting to design
> too slim a laptop and thus cramping the cable that connects the
motherboard
> and the screen. The cable is under alot of stress and needs to slide a
bit
> to relieve all that bending due to opening and closing the laptop. I
> suspect that when the computer was reassembled after the cable was
replaced
> that the space was so tight that they may have pinched the cable when
> reassembling the case. Even the use of tape to hold the cable in place
> while the case was reassembled might assist in reassembly, but would
> restrict the movement of the cable when the hinge is operated. It's not
an
> easy job to work in such tight spaces>" Dan Moody, Consultant He also
> told me there is no computer lemon law that he is aware of.
