Plugged in? DId you try removing both the battery and the power cable, hold down the power button for 5 seconds, then put battery and plug back in and try again?

Mine has the same poblem. I wanted to fix it without taking the whole thing apart and found this video
Here's what I did, first find out where the Nvidia chipset is located, for mine it's under the d button, then I heated up the keyboard with a hair dryer, then press firmly with the palm of my hand as in the video, then I took out the battery and put the laptop in the freezer for 1/2 hour. After that it works fine. Probably won't last, we'll see, but at least it starts now and I got all my files saved. :bounce: 
Just wanted to post this hoping it will help someone else!
