If you can login, and use the mouse to browse to here
C:\Windows\System32
and double-click
osk.exe
then this may help you deal with the issue - at least you'll be able to enter text at various points!

Has your keyboard got wet at any point?  If so, check youtube for instructions on removing it - only takes a few minutes on most models, and check that it's fully dry underneath.  You may need to leave it somewhere warm for a couple of days to dry out.  

I'd also suggest running
sfc /scannow
(you may need a w7 DVD handy), and also reinstalling a service pack.  These can resolve many corrupt file issues.

Failing that, you may want to do a repair install, which should leave data and programs intact, but repair much of the OS.

look if it works in safe mode (F8 key) or when booted from a live cd; here a nice one :

ok some things to try :
boot into safe mode - does it work now?
did you try from a live CD  yet?
can you get in device manager, and check if there are errors?
