Default Mouse pad keys

My wife has a dell inspirion M5030 and my son has a toshiba satellite M305D S4830 both which I took apart to clean the fan and when I put them back together as carefully as I could, the mouse pad keys both have failed. Can't figure out what I keep doing wrong?

That's odd. Does the track pad work?

Thanks for the reply, the track pad was working but I think I screwed things up when I kept taking it apart so I ordered a new one off Ebay. I'll keep you posted.

It does have a ribbon and I took it to a local computer repair store and discovered I was putting the ribbon back in crooked.

Those ribbons can be tricky. You have to seat them just right or they can give you problems. It would be a lot easier if they just had wires to plug back in.
