Is your Keyboard ps2 or usb? The onscreen keyboard is the accessibility one correct at the login screen? What happens if you reboot it and keep hitting F12(or whatever key shows up in the top right for boot menu) do you get a boot device screen?

Oh good catch then it might be their board is damaged and keys are stuck, that would explain why they can't input with the onscreen keyboard as well. I read it as Pavillion not Inspiron, wrong company

Yeah would rule out hardware, they could also disable the device in windows without removing it though. If they could login.
