Erratic Keyboard Behaviour

This morning, after using my laptop without issue last night, the keyboard stopped responding. The same thing had happened a week ago, but by simply resetting the BIOS defaults, the problem went away.

Frustrated, I ended up reinstalling Windows XP, only to find that the keyboard still does not work. However, if I press the keys really, really hard, some keys will respond some of the time. Thinking it was a connection problem, I disassembled the flashing and reseated the keyboard connector. Now, at this point I realized that I had been able to use my keyboard in the BIOS menu the whole time, but not in XP. This is evident because I can enable Caps lock during boot up until the point the windows loading screen comes up. The touchpad does not consistently work either, and usb devices still work, except of course for mice or keyboards! (Unless plugged in bvefore XP boots). It also loads the desktop very slowly.

Additionally, recently the battery meter constantly reads the battery as having 0% power, yet it will run my computer for as long as it ever has.

I'm really confused and rather frustrated. Except for the battery thing and
the keyboard issue a little while ago, there haas been no other warning.
