Not easy replacing connections on a mobo on a laptop. Whether it is possible I can't honestly say.

Buttons on a motherboard?

No such things.

Connections to the touchpad information should be available via the manufacturer's site. If they wish to publish.

I'd go for converting your customer to use a usb mouse.

On some you can replace the touchpad, but on most it's part of the palm rest. Probably expensive even if available.

jmh474, what are the symptoms that lead you to believe the touch pad is faulty/needs repairing?
