The keyboard and mousepad is not working

Without looking at it, I would have to say that the ribbon cable that connects the keyboard/mouse to the motherboard has been disconnected, you will need to research that. May be simple. Has there been any water spilled on it?

Laptop keyboard

Try removing he keyboard, clean the connector on both the keyboard and motherboard. Sometimes this connection will work loose or get dirt or corrosion. Make sure that it's seated well, then try it. If this doesn't fix it, I'm afraid it's time for a new keyboard.
