I have a Samsung RC512-S01 that's out of warranty. The right button below the touchpad stopped working completely. It doesn't function at all in Windows 7 or in Ubuntu and when I plug in a mouse, the right button on the mouse works so I know it's a hardware issue. The left button and the touchpad itself works fine.

I'm comfortable opening it up and if checking for loose connections, but if everything looks ok on the inside, would the item linked below be the replacement that I need?
