Is the hard drive already installed? Operating system too? Or are you just trying to enter the BIOS?

To enter "setup/BIOS/CMOS" have you tried these individual keys: Delete, ESC, F1, F2, F10 ?

Following the same line of logic as Viperone above, make sure that you're using a PS2 keyboard!

Hope this helps and let us know more.

nothing is installed yet just trying to enter BIOS. The keyboard must work because I press F2 to enter the screen I first talked about. If I don't press anything on the keyboard then it just shows some screen that says intel kind of like an advertisement. Don't know why BIOS wont run.

I figured it out. Turns out the dvd player I had hooked up was set to slave(I took it out of my old comp and didnt think to change it) so once I set it to master everything booted just fine and I got it up and running now. thanks to all that tried to help.
