I know why it`s like that there are two reasons

1st : your plug are too shabby.
2nd : try using a (USB) keyboard if u can`t afford it ,when you start your computer press all the keys on the keyboard but make sure you press the following first : Num , Lock Caps Lock , Scroll Lock then try to press as much as possible util the Welcome screen pops up.
(Hope it helps)

I have the same problem except I can use the F1 key to boot up but cannot type any letters or numbers. I tried the shift key 5 times and nothing happens.

Make sure after you on your computer do not pluck off the wires it will cause more problems if you do please restart ur com as soon as possible.
