Asus Eee PC trackpad acting strange? It’s easy to fix yourself!

I just recently bought an Asus Eee PC 1215B. It’s a great netbook but there are some unfortunate sore spots. Once they’re fixed, it’s pretty great. The first is the trackpad acts wonky after about 15-20min of usage. Crack open your Eee and don’t worry it’s not as bad as you think! My particular issue was silver electrical “tape” on a certain screw that was touching other metal. Others say there’s a pad too close to the grounding metal connector. Either way it seems like it comes down to bad electrical connections. The other problem is my FN keys just recently disappeared on me. Not sure why, still looking for a fix for that.
