Check your keyboard connections. Also, when powering on the unit, try holding down any set of keys through the boot process.

If the keyboard is working and connected correctly, it will show a fault when booting.

Also, you can use a USB external keyboard to do your BIOS updates.

Might give this a try-right click on your Computer icon-click on Properties-then click on Device Manager. The keyboard is listed there. If it has a yellow exclamation point, or a yellow question mark, then there is a problem. Click on the arrow in front of Keyboards, then right click on the drop down named keyboard. There you can click on update drivers. That should solve the problem.
