So, it stopped working when you did the power socket repair? Did you have to disconnect the touch pad to access the power socket? From most notebooks I have seen, you have to totally disassemble them before you get to the stage where you could put a soldering iron to anything.

A broken trace in the flexible strip connecting the touchpad to the motherboard is the most likely cause. Some people have reported successful repairs of them with windscreen-demister repair paint. (conductive paint used to repair rear window demisters). If you can find the break, you can get a little bottle of demister repair compound at an auto supplies store.
