Can you try starting in Safe Mode? Switch off completely, then press the Start button and immediately repeatedly press F8 - if it then starts choose Safe Mode with Networking, if it completes this far, you could then try a System Restore back to when all was OK.

Sounds like faulty hardware then - has anything been spilled on the keyboard, like coffee (very sticky) for instance?

Yes I think Hardware, but I am using a nc10 to write this keep tapping F8 and choose last known good config. to see how it goes

Plug in a USB keyboard.

If that lets you log in then try removing / reinstalling the keyboard driver in device manager.

reboot and retry the normal keyboard.
