Fantastic, thank you for posting above that removing the battery sorted the problem. I had exactly the same problem as you with being able to sign in with my password but neither the keyboard or touch pad worked past this point. It's weird that the keyboard worked for signing in with the password but then didn't work anywhere else. Wonder what causes the problem coz I can't think of a logical explanation. Anyway I didn't have to hold the on/off button down for 2 mins. Just removing the battery and then replacing it cured it. I can't thank you enough for helping me to solve this.
