Hello gunnz;

A clean re-install of Win8 Dev preview is your best bet.

Just to confirm:
The keys are working OK right up to the time Win8 tries to start?
You should be about to reach the Advanced Boot Menu with the F12 key right after power on.

It's not sounding Windows / operating system related. Sounds more of a hardware problem.
The OS doesn't start to load up until after all that (F2/F12 option) pre-boot stuff is complete.

Could be a simple hardware problem, may be just the keyboard. Try a USB one.

But you said you bought it, does it mean it is a recent purchase and still under warranty? Return it to get repair if it is.
