It sounds like someone is playing a prank on you, but normally it is easily fixed.
Open your control panel and here you can find Keyboard and Mouse. In those two, you can change the permanent settings for your mouse and keyboard.
There is no key combination to turn the keyboard off. Usually what happens in cases like this is the keyboard was overloaded, and the driver glitched. Uninstall the keyboard driver from the device manager, then reboot. The machine will find the keyboard, and reinstall the driver. This should get it working again, if not let me know, and we'll try a different approach.
I think that maybe a Driver OR that a games DOS Keyboard interpreting, TSR (Terminate and Stay Resident) program that isn't being cleared from memory and this mucks up ya keyboard? Thats only thing I can think of.. and of course any keyboard drivers too, if used.
Find any errant programs with Task Manager, and stop it. Also make sure if any, that they aren't set to start automatically.
