Default touchpad and mousepad problems

Hi all.
I am repairing a Dell inspirion 6400 at the moment, and the left and right mouse buttons on the mousepad stopped working. It works fine with a usb mouse but i cant find a solution anywhere.The mousepad itself works fine and moves around the screen. I have downloaded drivers, took the laptop apart to see was anything out of place, and checked for answers online,but to no avail.

I am also working on a dell inspirion 510m with the " 9,o,l, and . keys" on the keyboard not working. On the keyboard these keys are in a diagonal to each other so this may have had a bearing on things. Just wondering if anyone has a fix for either of my problems. Any help would be greatly appreciated, John

The 510 is a bad keyboard. You can try reseating the keyboard cable to the mobo, but it is likely a futile effort.

As far as the touchpad buttons go, it could be the button daughter card, the touchpad, or the cabling between the two.

for the 6400, you said you downloaded the drivers. Did you open the touchpad control settings and check the if the buttons have been disabled?

I would also try going to the device manager and deleted the synaptic drivers - the reinstall the drivers.
