Question about EliteGroup P6IWP-Fe Motherboard
If you are using a USB keybord then you will have to change the settings in your bios setup so as to enable USB support, thus you will be able to use you usb keyboard and usb mouse, but you will obviously need a ps/2 keyboard in order to access the bios setup and make the necessary changes. On the other hand if you are already using a ps/2 keyboard the problem could be the keboard, so try another one if that does not work then you keyboard slot could be damaged (try a usb keyboard - with any luck the usb interface would already have been enabled but you can also enable it within your operating system just using your mouse. Also check with your ps/2 keyboard that you are pluging is in the correct slot (purple- keyboard, green- mouse)

Tips for a great answer:
A blacked-out screen doesn't necessarily indicate a broken monitor.
If the computer has run out of charge or is in hibernation or sleep mode,
if the screen is too dark, or if the display cable has come disconnected from the motherboard, the screen may appear black or fail to turn on.
To fix a blacked-out laptop screen, troubleshoot the screen settings, check the LCD connector and see if the computer is awake and receiving power.
Touch the touchpad or move the external mouse to see if the computer is asleep or hibernating. If the computer fails to respond, press "Enter" on the keyboard.
Press the power button if the screen remains black.
Confirm that the power indicator light, found at the front of the computer or above the keyboard, is glowing solid green or blue.
Confirm that the power adapter is plugged into the computer and into a wall outlet. Confirm that battery indicator light is glowing solid green or blue.
Hold down the "Fn" key. Press the up-arrow to see if the screen brightness increases.
Some computers also use the "F6" or "F7" keys to increase screen brightness.
Hold down the power button for 10 seconds to turn off the laptop.
Remove the AC adapter from the computer, close the screen, and then turn the PC over.
Slide the battery latch to eject the battery. Pull the battery out of its compartment.
Turn the computer back over, open the lid, and insert the edge of a flathead screwdriver or other flat, solid object beneath the bezel above the keyboard.
Wedge the edge of the keyboard bezel off of the top cover.
Work your way along the edge of the keyboard bezel to loosen it.
Pull the bezel off the laptop.
Trace the cable coming from the laptop screen to the connector found beneath the bezel. Reconnect the display cable to the motherboard if the cable has come loose from the connector.
Line up the tabs on the bezel with the slots along the top of the keyboard. Insert the right edge of the bezel into the gap above the keyboard, and then push the bezel back in place.
Turn the computer back on. If the laptop screen is still blacked out, connect an external monitor to the video port on the side of the PC to confirm that the video card isn't defective.
If the external monitor works, the LCD screen could be broken.
If the monitor doesn't work, the motherboard or video card might need to be replaced.
Hope this helps

test the usb lead make sure its not faulty or try another keyboard
try blowing out all of the dust from your keyboard using a fine air blower from an air compressor making VERY sure there is no MOISTURE in the lines.
dust causes static which causes lots of problems with a computer and its parts
