I am not sure what you mean by no keyboard as the first thing I would have suggested is plugging a keyboard into the USB port

The recovery is the F9 pressed during boot up 

manual http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/nb/K55VM/E7187_eManual_K55VM_K55VS_Z104.pdf page A-16 has the full details. 

 

Also some advice from this site by Tim Hoffstetter about reseating the cables , worth a try https://www.quora.com/Im-using-an-Asus-K55A-laptop-and-recently-the-F2-2-W-S-X-and-Z-keys-stopped-wo...

Re: asus k55a ?

A bit of Mr Google has helped , apparently its a software problem with win8.1 which is quite common on this Asus laptop .

What i have managed to do is Download a win10 iso Burn to Dvd , the Laptop boot sequence must be CD then HD as it wont boot from USB ,, anyhow its now running win10 fine just have to update drivers and should be all fine Thumbs Up
