Could be 2 things, but usally when you have to prop it up its a broken power connector on the motherboard, if the pin inside the power hole on the laptop moves this is whats happened, you could solder it back on if you know what you are doing or its a new mother board needed, the easy option would be a faulty power cable but check for any pin movement on the laptop before buying a new one.

It sounds very unlikely but it does sound like the harddrives crashed and need to hard drives in both. That would be the cheapest route but if not the hard drive then it would be the motherboad not sending power to the harddrive.

There is not so much that could be done to repair a keyboard. Disassemble the laptop, check the ribbon cable connecting the keyboard to the motherboard. If the ribbon cable is loose, tighten it. If it is tight, replace the keyboard with a new one
