U use your keyboard during the boot process to get into the Cmos menu. Varies by company - could be the delete key that you have to hit, F2, F11 - like I said it varies and you will have to experiment unless you can get the info from the mo bo site.
Watch the BIOS post, most all motherboards have the hot-key menu at BIOS post.
If for some reason the hot-key is not reported on BIOS post, then you hit the DELETE key and enter the BIOS, Advanced BIOS Features Setup Menu and set what hardware you want to boot first, under Hard Disk Boot Priority, set First Boot Device
During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS you can load failsafe defaultsor load optimized defaults ,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart or During the boot process tap thef8 button three times this will boot into safe mode where the only things working will be your mouse and keyboard enabling you to attempt to repair your computer Also you might try Turn Off the computer, now as soon as you hit the power button, keep on holding "Alt" key & keep on tapping "F10 key,ie: Alt+F10, it will open the recovery console ,select full factory restore and follow on screen instruction. (Note:this will erase all datas on the computer)
During the boot process you
will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup Press and hold that key
during the boot up process to enter BIOS you can load failsafe

three times this will boot into safe mode where the only things working will be
your mouse and keyboard enabling you to attempt to repair your computer hope this helps
Disconnect all devices except keyboard and mouse and master cd or DVD. unplug then hit power button. Plug back in. Hit power and hopefully you get to BIOS. If you do make sure you save the BIOS before you leave to start OS. Keep me informed and I'll keep checking your listing to see if its working or not.
ok fair enough.... boot the computer and watch the screen.... you need to watch for the key to enter setup.... delete key seems to be the most popular but i've had computers use f1 and f2, f11 and f12.... if it goes to fast hit pause as it gets to the point where it tells you the key to hit to enter setup.... after you are in change the boot sequence to boot to cdrom..... hit f10 and save the changes... reboot to the cd and continue with your install
Have you tried using a PS/2 keyboard? Or the other way around, a USB keyboard.
Additionally you can try doing a reset on the motherboard by temporarily relocating the jumper on the CMOS reset pins (JP1 close to the Lithium battery) from 2-3 to 1-2 for a couple of seconds then back. Normally, once performed, the motherboard on the next boot will revert to default and auto request a CMOS setup. Alternately you can also temporarily remove the battery for about 15 minutes.
If the USB and/or PS/2 KB nor the CMOS reset does not allow you to enter the BIOS setup, perhaps you need to return the board for replacement since this is indicative of MB failure.
Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need further information.
try starting up in Safe Mode by tapping the F6 key during boot-up. this prevents drivers from loading. you may have a corrupted keyboard driver. if your keyboard works in safe mode, try uninstall of the kbd driver, then reinstall.. check for a newer driver version.
