Humm, I've had no problem with an AMD64 desktop.
Have you tried an external keyboard or adjusting bios settings?
I'm sure there is a way to make a kbd work. What model laptop?
Have you tried other BSDs or knoppix? is it a ps2 kbd or ???
Maybe need a custom kernel to use kbd, does the laptop support
PXE boot to install that way?
