You possibly have a spyware infection, (like a virus)

if you reboot and have the same problems, then try booting into safe mode, if keyboard still locked up, try using an external keyboard (to test your system), if the external keybard works then it may just be that your keyboard is broken (and needs replacing)

Brand new dell latitude e6510. been using it with no problem for a week. now when I tirn on none of the keys respond except for the button mouse in the middle of the keyboard. can't close open windows,...

Call Dell open a ticket and ship it back to them. Could be many things. Was anything spilled on the laptop or was the laptop violently jarred or dropped?

Can't access desktop, windows won't load so pc won't shut down

Hold th epower button down on your tower for about 5-10 seconds and it should shut off. Then you can turn it back on. If that doesnt shut it down you can always pull the power cord.

HP laptop keyboard frozen

Hello. If your laptop model is TX-something (convertible screen), do remove battery + powercable. Wait. Start your laptop. If this does not work, you may wish to reset bios.

Keep looking for BIOS update, because problem will repeat until HP address the issue.
