Laptop keyboard locked at xp logon screen, external mouse OK????

  1. This one's driving me nuts...I suspect a virus but open to anything half sensible...screen shimmers as logon screen appears, not normal. Once screen finished shimmering and logon screen appears, keyboard and touchpad don't function, not even ctrl-alt-del! External mouse works to select logon id but cant enter anything. Is this a known virus? Can't use laptop.
