I assume you've managed to get into bios in the past on this computer and are aware of the procedure. If this is the case it could be a hardware fault. An external keyboard would prove / disprove whether the keyboard is OK, although as the mouse is not working either it doesn't seem too likely.

One bit of voodoo you can try, which on odd occasions can unstick things, is this:
Turn off computer and remove power. If at all possible remove the main battery too. Before re-assembling hold the Power Off/On button down for at least 20 seconds to discharge the motherboard components. At least it is easy to try - cross your fingers too LOL.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
