    hitting delete to enter BIOS, does not work, neither does F8 for
    SAFE MODE.
    Abit 7 MBoard running WinXP SP2.

    Is it a PS/2 keyboard? If so, is it plugged into the mouse port and not the
    keyboard port?

    Is it a USB keyboard? If so, try a PS/2 keyboard temporarily. With a PS/2
    keyboard you can get into the CMOS setup screens. In Integrated Peripherals
    (possibly one of the sub-menus beneath), set "Keyboard support via" from OS
    to BIOS then Save & Exit Setup. Allow the computer to reboot then shut down
    and power down so you can remove the PS/2 keyboard (you don't want to
    plug/unplug components from the PS/2 ports when the system has power applied
    ... even backup power).
