How long have you had your Asus EeePC
? It seems like you have had it forever, and you have made it a habit to carry it everywhere with you. It is in your bag, ready to be used for work, to watch a movie, play a game, or connect to the Internet. You have learned to depend on it over the months or years, and use it daily. However, your flat flexible cable
for short), also called ribbon cable
, multi planar cable
, or simply flat cable
, has become damaged or is malfunctioning. This part occupies a critical function within your computer, as it enables the transmission of information between the different electronic boards
, and also other components (Motherboard
, controller board
, etc.). This ribbon cable includes several conductors, arranged in a flat configuration which makes it look like a ribbon (hence the names ribbon cable or flat cable). They are perfectly adapted to fit the usual connectors on the electronic boards, and can transmit a lot of information, very quickly! However, they are fragile and are not meant to be bent back and forth repeatedly, or folded tightly. This would break the conductive wires inside the cable, and could cause loss of information, or complete communication failures between your computer's components. In practice this means your computer will often crash, or maybe certain components will not work properly, for example your Wi-Fi board or your LCD screen. The Asus Notebook FFC cable connects components to the motherboard. It can be damaged for several reasons. A cable can have between 6 and 40
pins/conductors, like for example the touchpad cable (30-Pin), power cable (6-Pin) or HDD cable (30-Pin).
