Toshiba laptop 3.7 installation problem

I been trying to install OpenBSD 3.7 and/ or 3.5 in my new laptop (new means it was bought in September, 2004). The bootloader get stuck at "pckbc0 ISA Q Port 0x60/5" every time. Oddly both 3.5 and 3.7 giving me the same error and getting stuck at the same place. I tried to boot with boot_menuconfig(8) and did "boot -c" and then "verbose" and it says: "probing for pckbc0 probing for pckbc0 succeeded pckbc0" and then it is stuck their eternally. I have also tried to disable pckbc0 but if I do so it fails to recognize a lot of hardware but I get the shell prompt and then my keyboard does not work. The new laptops details are given below: Toshiba Satellite, Mobile Intel Pentium 4, 3.20GHz processor speed, 510 RAM, DVD+CD-burner combo, 70GB HDD, Wifi (Atheros 802.11g). Any help on how to circumvent the problem would be much appreciated. --Zinga open ports 24000 , 24100

Install new hdd toshiba a15-s157

Not much, its all pretty automatic, just answer the questions.
After installing the WD, power up, open the tray, insert the reinstall disk and reboot.
One of 3 things will happen. It will boot to the CD and start installing, or press and key to boot from CD will appear (press any key quickly), or it will try to boot from the hard drive and fail. If you experience the last option it means that the hard drive is set to boot before CD. Yor system may have a boot menu option where you can select the boot device or you may have to go into the bios and change the boot order.

The follow link is to a Toshiba article that explains the boot menu and changing the boot sequence in the bios.

What it does not explain is how to access the bios. On some Toshiba system you have to press ESC right after you hit the power button, on others it is F1, on newer systems you have to hold the ESC while you press the power button and hold it until it display System Check and then press F1 .
