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?

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.

Go to the start button and hit the lock key to log out.  Log back in.  Try the keyboard.
