I was suspecting software but after reading into the issue I believe it may be the cable itself going to the keyboard. Has anyone tried this http://theappleblog.com/2009/04/06/the-cur...d-and-trackpad/

The macbook im using has a slightly different battery location but I think it may be the same issue..seen here http://tinypic.com/r/andmhh/7

The trackpad works however nothing on the keyboard works not even the caps lock light up. Any ideas ?

difficult to diagnose, but I personally would try the steps on the first link you posted including the installation of the growler software.
If you've gone as far as taking the battery out and having a look then I'm guessing you'd be ok giving this a try.

And even though I'd do it myself, I can't condone tinkering with hardware while you've got the unit plugged in or powered up.
If you do, its entirely at your own risk. Don't blame me if your hair goes frizzy!

No no playing around while its powered on lol. It was determined that it was the keyboard that was shorted out from a bad spill. Luckily the rest of the macbook is working.
