Is the keyboard being ignored, or is there a systemic issue with the keyboard itself? Even with the keyboard apparently locked, can you still manipulate its state - does the light come on when you press the num-lock or caps-lock buttons? Is the Scroll Lock light on? What happens if you press CTRL-ALT-F2? (That should drop you into a text console.)

Thanks for considering my problem . My problem has been solved by replacing ps2 keyboard with USB keyboard.
