Exactly what is the problem here? The touch screen isn't working? How?

I think the keyboard wont type and only the touch screen is working.
Would I be correct?

Well, if that, is your keyboard disabled at all? does Windows detect it? may be a bad keyboard or loose connection. Could be bad chipset drivers, too.

On a laptop, I would think the chipset driver would be the most common problem and would be quite easy to diagnose

True. If there is a default or no driver, there is no chipset drivers. You need special drivers to use the special FN keys and so forth. But as he cant use it period, I would first see if Windows can detect it at all.

True True, and if it is not detected, wouldn't it be a safe course of action to send it back to the manufacturer, seeing as fiddling around in a laptop can get quite messy, especially when looking for the keyboard cable?

If it is under warranty, definately. But if it is not under warranty, it is not that hard to remove a keyboard. If that is the problem.
