I think I have heard this before, and the error was that it had something to do with drivers.

When turning the computer on, hold down the option key. Can you then use the keyboard??

If so, it's because when it's in the OS it uses an SPI data line, while not, it uses a USB data line mode.

This means that the SPI data line is dead, and only the USB data line is working. Even if you force it to use the USB data line by soldering two connection lines together, the OS doesn't even have the drivers. Even a simple linux recovery disk does.

If you want to, you could try to do the "repair" and then maybe find some drivers and hopefully get it to work. I don't know if it will work, but if you want to, try it.

Here's a video of how to force it into always using the USB data line:
