Agree with you 100%...

I like to fix other peoples systems, the only issue I have with that is when I ask the person when was the last time you backed up?

And get a blank stare with whats that?

Here's the sad verdict from my local expert: Its going to need a new motherboard.For what it would cost to repair, you can by one new. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...6ZXV5QVXBC6H8D

Now I'm even more confused! The expert advised that it was probably a bad chip on the MB which controls the input from the keyboard, since he got the machine running and charged but w/o keyboard input could go no farther. I took the machine home and plugged in an external USB keyboard...and the keystrokes register! Do I now think about a new keyboard?

Sounds like the diagnosis is correct then (won't work with integrated keyboard, but works with external).

Replacing the keyboard may fix it, but it may not. You have to decide how much time / money you want to continue to put into this.

I rarely use the integrated keyboard as I find them awkward. I have a wireless white with black letters that I use. I can see the letters better black on white than white on black, and not being a touch typist I need to see the letters sometimes.
