Hmm, I think following Chris Bannister's advice of trying a live-cd distro would be worth testing to see if your keyboard is recognised and functional there. If that fails, then I'd try a cheap USB keyboard. It would be unusual in my experience for a keyboard to need any kind of driver beyond what's already there for basic functionality, but I'm open to the possibility with "gaming" keyboards.
