Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
Sorry to hear of your problem. Can you borrow a USB keyboard to see if that will work properly with the computer and allow you to enter your password?
You should also do a soft reset just to rule out any possible hardware conflict. Just do this.....
1. Shut down Windows and unplug the charger / adapter.
2. Remove the battery.
3. Press and hold the Power Button for 15 seconds.
4. Re-install the battery, plug in the charger / adapter if needed and power up the system to see if the problem was resolved.

I have tried that, and it didnt work.
Now i am on my 3 reinstall of windows 8, but i dont think its gonna help this time eighter.
Is it possible to install windows 7 instead, just to se if the problem is windows 8 related?

Since a USB keyboard didn't work, I would give Windows 7 a try.

How do i install windows 7?
I have tried 2 times first from usb and then from cd, and both times it reads t
some system files and then going back reboot and load windows 10.
Do i have to downgrade the bios first to windows 7 and how do i do that?
Please give som links to bios uttility tools.

Since you are having problems with the Windows 7 install then I would just download Hiren's Boot CD and create a bootable CD. You can then boot the system with Hiren's and use one of the word processing or notepad utilities to check out your keyboard. This will save you from trashing your currently installed operating system since these applications will run directly from the CD. If the problem still occurs with the boot CD then the problem is not with the operating system, but is hardware related.
Here is a link to Hiren's.......

Since I've never installed an operating system on your model I will point you to another discussion that you should help. Here is that discussion....
