    ok...
    it seems your "keyboard" section could be missing, not well described...

    You do have access to your keyboard in terminal right...
    can you post your xorg file in "code" bracket... and try removing as many comment as possible please

    The problem is in the "InputDevice" section for your keyboard. Look to the line that reads Driver "Keyboard" and make the 'K' lowercase.

    Code:
    Driver "keyboard"
