Gentoopc,

That's a multiple choice question.

The internal or an external keyboard?
You need the right hardware driver, USB, or whatever and the keyboard driver itself, probably evdev but NOT evdev debug as that logs all the keystrokes.
Key stroke logging is considered a very bad thing.

The output of dmesg can help too. If your keyboard uses PS/2 internally, it will show there.

Gentoopc,

Do you have a dmesg from a live CD where it boots?
Laptops can be USB, PS/2 or even I2C.

Post
Code:
lspci -nnk
and pastebin your kernel .config.

As part of posting your solution, please include the lspci or lsusb output that led you to the solution, as well as the kernel configuration option(s) that you enabled.
