Missing model number.

But try the usual reset next -> It's at

As to no keyboard I have to guess the keyboard is there but since nothing booted you can't use it.
If the keyboard is in fact removed and gone, you replace the missing part.

Get a keyboard plugged in. Press f8 repeatedly to get into the 'advanced boot options'. From there choose to restore your system.

Try running the OS in safe mode
Perform clean boot:
Scan the computer with an antivirus tool.
Update your video driver

• Go to Start>Control Panel, and then, under Appearance and Personalization, click Adjust screen resolution.
• Click Advanced settings>Monitor tab, and then, under Screen refresh rate, click the desired screen refresh rate
• Click Apply.

Also try changing your screen resolution:
