Hmm, you mean it powers up with blue border and blue screen, but there is no Basic and no bytes free message, and the cursor is missing and so you cannot type anything ?
If that's the case then the problem is almost 100% a bad basic rom. If you have a cartridge for your C64 then you can try that and look if it can run the cartridge ( cartridge should run even with bad basic rom ).
If you cannot find a new basic rom chip then you can also use a 2764 Eprom with an adapter
