Not that I am aware of, I had unlocked DLC's for the game. The steam game came with a code that I diddn't realize unti'll I had noticed it. I realized it was a DLC code and went to the bioware site and unlocked it to my account. I hadn't tried out yet, I went offline and the next day I had the issue. However I don't see how a DLC unlock would effect my keyboard.
*EDIT* Oh and thank you for responding and trying to help out. You won't believe how much of a joke Bioware/EA's tech support is or the support for that game. Nobody can get a answer there, a lot of people are even turning to getting cracked game versions in order to solve there problems as they seem to fix some of the issues they have.

They might as well be saying that, it's the best tech support suggestion that got the most people saying "thanks it worked". Which is more than tech support for DA2 can say.
Its obvious your keyboard is working since you can bring up the task manager to kill the game.
So it comes down to the game, and maybe a setting, like perhaps it has switched itself to gamepad only, so mouse and keyboard has been disabled?
That seems like it could be possible, do you know where exactly I can check this/change it?
EA Support is actually suggesting you use a cracked game as a means to fix your problem??
Anyway, your issue is one example of many why I never will play a Steam game again, unless I want the game so badly and it still has to use Steam only only, I will pass. I learned my lessons with Fallout Vegas and Just Cause 2, both of which I have hard copies of.
In any case, back up your saves, uninstall the game then reload it and see if that resets your settings.
No, EA Support is not suggesting people use a cracked game as a means to fix problems. Users who frequent the tech support forums have suggested cracked versions as fixes. Users tried it and have stated that it worked for there game.
Also I have said above that I have removed my saves, did a complete uninstall of the game including removing all files and folders (this includes saves), registries that were left behind on the uninstall. Complete clean uninstall with no luck. I've done this a total of 4 times.
I've also never had a issue with steam, infact majority of the DA2 issues that have been reported were from people with hard copies of the game or non-steam D2D versions. I've always liked Steam as it always gave people good discounts on games, D2D copies (which I find easier) and auto-updates of games and auto-install of DLC's, Expansions, etc. Though I guess you can't beat a hard copy version.
Try removing the keyboard drivers from your device manager, then restart windows. Otherwise, it must be the game since you have no other issues with your KB working.
Anyway, I like Steam games just fine, no issues with playability, but I despise its limitations which are abysmal. I have had no issues with their games and have bought a few indie games from them. The problem I have is, once you install and play a game from Steam, whether it is a hard copy or download, that game can ONLY be played from the account you started it with and it has to be loaded with an account, and that is just plain unacceptable.
My wife couldn't play Vegas on her Steam account because it is already on mine, and Steam games, either media, forces you to load the game under an account.. As much as I dislike EA, they don't do that with their game and D2D never does that, so I buy my games from them if they are downlaoded. As much as many rail on GFWL, at least with that system, you can play the same disc or downloads on as many Live accounts as you please.
I'll damned if I am paying full price for another game just so my wife can play them too.
