Touch keys wont work buti can use the mouse
Do you mean the mouse buttons below the touchpad do not work but the actual touchpad does? If so I would try removing/reinstalling your touchpad drivers. If that holds no success I would consider replacing the touchpad hardware.

I used to get this problem. It is VERY annoying as you must know. try pushing the windows icon button in the top right corner of your keyboard(thats where it is on my keyboard)then use your arrow keys to scroll up to control panel, select mouse by using arrow keys and then use the tab and arrow keys to open the mouse keypad pagetab and push enable and enter key to turn it on.
IF WHEN YOU DO THAT AND your in the touchpad properties but there is no 'enable' and it says no hardware detected, then go into the same mouse window from the control panel and go to the hardware tab and either try to update driver or use the trouble shoot button.
Hope this helped =]

that part of the touch pad is not working anymore, its faulty and you need to replace the whole touch pad.
I don't know why this is mostly common with Dell. My friend has a Dell inspirion 1501 and the touch pad has exactly the same problem as yours.
I would advice you get a USB mouse to keep you going pending the time you get the touch pad fixed.
I wish you the best of luck.

Tips for a great answer:
Locate the "Fn" key in the lower right or left corner of the laptop keyboard.
The "Fn" key typically has different colored text on it or the key itself is a different color.
Locate the function (F1 through F12) key at the top of the keyboard that disables or enables the touchpad on the laptop.
The key typically has an icon that resembles a touchpad with a finger touching it or a touchpad with a diagonal line through it.
Press both the "Fn" and touchpad Function key simultaneously to reactive the touchpad on your laptop.
Move your finger along the touchpad to verify that it works.
Press the combination at any time to disable the touchpad again.
hope this helps
