Question about IBM ThinkPad T40 2373 Notebook
The left click for the mouse does not respond at all, and the right click is very slow, but the mouse works fine for allowing movement of the cursor, and the key board seems OK otherwise. We turned on and off the computer a few times but nothing seemed to work. Any ideas?
It's kind of hard to tell without actually looking at it,but
as skotkoir sez, replacing it with a good used on is probably the better way to go. Sounds like you have one of two problems. Either there is something (foreign objects, food, soft drink residue) that is binding up the buttons and/or making them sticky; or something has broken in the assembly. Not much that you can fix.

Replace the keyboard with one from eBay that would be the least costly way to repair the problem. sounds like the cable has been damaged for the keyboard to motherboard interface. have you tried connecting a mouse to the usb port or the ps2 port on the back? that may solve the problem if you don't want to replace the keyboard
