    Hello

    I have an mk1 and mk2 toughpad fzg1. The mk1 won’t boot up as motherboard is faulty it’s in excellent condition and I have an mk2 that boots up but in very bad condition. I want to swap the parts from mk2 to mk1 body. Any help please. Even if I just change the screen of mk1 to mk2 and the fan as well as the one in mk2 is very dirty.

    Thanks.

    I will upload the pin connector of screen in mk1 as I don’t know how to remove it.

    I don't know if you are swapping screens or entire housing or what for sure.
    You bounced around a bit.

    Screens should swap.
    Housing may not work. Motherboard and heatsinks are quite a bit different.
    You need to compare both units side by side.
    Proceed carefully as the housing / motherboard removal is detailed. Heat sink pads WILL need to be replaced. LCD cable connector ends break easily.

    Thanks for the reply. It was a success and I'm currently using it now. It's fast and awesome in windows 10 x63 v1903.

    Just a question though, there is a GPS which is enables in the bios? Where can I see the drivers to get it working in GPS viewer?

    Cheers

    You need the gps module to make that work.

    Thanks.

    I thought it has already a GPS inside. Its wwan has a gps built in so I can navigate via map. Its awesome in windows 10.
    I havea keyboard key from ikey. Do you know if there's any drivers available for that so the TouchPad can work like scrolling on the side. Because its pretty basic
