Please can anyone out there give me some advice, it would be much appreciated.
Welcome to the forums:
Based on what you have said, it looks like your keyboard is not sending the keystrokes to the system.
Have you tried to get into your bios to see if the keyboard works there?
Usually it is f1 f2 f10 or the Esc or Del key to go into bios when you first turn the machine on.
Let us know.
Also, you might want to fill in your system specifications so that others can see your model number and such for helping you.
