Unhappy Suspect Motherboard Can U Help?

A friend of mine gave me his computer and asked me to fix it for him.
after several attempts i have been stumped by this problem...

The hdd has been formatted and when you start the computer the error message "ntldr is missing" occurs, this would be fine if the computer would respond to the keyboard! it simply wont register or respond to any keyboard i use, USB or otherwise.

CAN ANYONE HELP ME PLEASE!
HOW DO I FIX IT?
