acer 5024wlmi keyboard issue

i put this here because im not sure if its hardware or software or distro related mostly
maybe someone could help me?

this is my problem
i want to install linux on my laptop but whenever i run linux after a given time the keyboard just stops reacting.

i tried:

hitting some keys for keyboard initialization at bios loading time
hitting shift+f1 at bios loading
hitting sysrq at bios loading
hitting sysrq at hang time to re initialize the keyboard
smash my keyboard out of anger (gently ofcourse)

my system:

acer 5024 wlmi
1.8ghz turion 64
128 ati x700
80gig 4200 hd

distro's tried (all the same problem):
fedora core (3 , 4 and 5)
slackware (9.1, 10, 10.1, 10.2)
red hat
gentoo (couldnt finish installation)
knoppix(live cd)

i also tried linux from scratch but their distributed cd for installation had the same problem.

as you can figure out its upsetting me big time

could someone pleeeeeaaasssse help me?
