Almost sounds like the keyboard has gone bad. Try this: remove the battery and power cable.
Wait 30 seconds or so and put the battery back in. It may work now.
Also, when the system starts up, can you hit the F2 key to get into setup (at least I think it's the F2 key). If so, you may be able to load the BIOS defaults and it will work again.
Otherwise, you are looking at a repair job.
