This could be a hardware or software (windows) problem.
If it is hardware it could be as simple as the connector ribbon inside is loose or that the touch-pad unit is failing. A replacement is $30-$80 plus labour.
I've seen a few of these where the problem is windows acting up. Since you have tried the drivers and they didn't fix it what you can try is go to control panel - system - hardware - device manager - mice and other pointing devices
Open that and select and then delete the pointing device or mouse shown. Then reboot. Windows is now forced to detect the touchpad hardware and reinstall the drivers. That usually does the trick unless it is hardware caused.
Now the tricky bit. Once you delete the mouse you will have to close and reboot using only your keyboard. You need windows to reboot normally, you can't just pull the power cord. To do this use ALT-F4. Hold down the ALT key and press the F4 that will close the windows until you get back to the windows desktop where it will close down windows. When you start the computer again your mouse will be detected and will work again. What we won't know is if that is enough to reset things and get your buttons working until you try this. You can try this a few times but generally if the drivers are right and you have done this then its time to replace the touch-pad.
