Can't get into Bios?

Man, I'm having problem after problem with this friggin computer I bought on eBay (it's the one I had problems installing Windows on). Anyway, I add a GeForce 3 card and it would crash whenever I played any kind of games. Anyway, I figured I needed to disable the onboard video and a few people chimed in on my post and agreed. So I get into the BIOS and it won't let me modify anything... seriously, none of the key's on the keyboard will work (PAGE UP, PAGE DOWN, ENTER) except for ESC Any ideas on this one?

FYI.. check the IRQ on your Network Card and Video card... this should be able to be changed in the bios..

usually when your video card goes to3d mode and it crashes its an IRQ conflict... usually using the same as the network card.

lastly.. pull the CMOS battery.. and let the board reset!


EDIT: some BIOS's wont respond well to a USB keyboard... is yours USB?
