    have you tried resetting the iPad through iTunes, you shouldn't need a keyboard for that?

    If you have accidently dismissed the keyboard (usualy by tapping the keyboard key at the bottom right), all you have to do to get it back is tap the text entry area (where you are supposed to type stuff) and it will pop back up.
