first thing would be to restart in safe mode (tap f8 at boot) does the keyboard or usb board work?
open device manager, uninstall the keyboard check the remove drivers box and reboot the machine while connected to the internet.

if it fails to reinstall your keyboard correctly, try a usb keyboard in each usb slot, you should the little pop up installing drivers.

if that fails i would suggest that you save all your files, and do a full factory restore, this delete your C; drive and reinstall your system to the day you bought it.

if you still have problems, then you have hardware issues, ask yourself this: can i afford a new machine? can i afford a repair? can i just have a go at repairing it myself?

it may just be a simple connection issue, loose connection/wire, you can probably find your model on youtube and watch a video how to take it apart, from there you just check all the connections, clean out all the dirt etc.

of course if its still under guarantee, just send it back, but save all your files first.

didnt see the second post, open control panel/region & languages/ keyboards check that your keyboad and languages are correct, remove any false keyboard info.
