Question about Computers & Internet
If you can see the OS in a bright light on the moniter,"It seems to be working in the background", I would thing it's the CCL or back lighting. Sometimes the small switch that shuts-down the CCL when you close the lid of the laptop gets stuck with age. I have repaired some monitor problems, the switch is located near/under the hinges. Locate the tiny switch and make sure it is moving freely, as in, up to turn-on CCL, and down to turn-off CCL. The other issue I fixed was the "ribbon-cable on the rear of the flat monitor. It get jared loose sometimes with a bump.

Sounds like a problem with the video adapter chip. The chip might be either defective or experiencing bad connection with the motherboard. In order to fix this problem, you will need to disassemble the notebook, pull out the motherboard & inspect the video chip & its connection points to the motherboard. If the video chip is defective, you might have to replace the motherboard.

Thank you for your query
Please try the following
1) Hook up a external keyoard to the USB/PS2 prot and see what happens
2) Press all the keys several times when the laptop is switched off to ensure that the keys are not stuck i.e. with debris etc etc
if this fails it would seem you have a bad keyboard, and would be looking at getting replaced
Please leave feedback/vote if my answer was helpful
