I can't enter my BIOS. Whenever i hit alt+F2, I'm asked to insert disk and press enter, I put in my dos boot disk, and hit enter. It takes me to a screen that says Source file not found! What happened to my bios??

Are you sure altF2 is the correct way to enter your BIOs? Some MB's use the delete key, some F1 etc. I question this because it asks to insert a disk.

Yeah, it says it on the first screen that comes up, AWD AwardBIOS (ASUS). And i Did check the manual as well. Also, to add to my post, I can't really use my administrator account in XP, but my guest acct. with no admin. privledges works fine

I don't get it, why would i do that if the manual from my MB say to hit alt+F2 to enter bios?? I don't think that how i get into my bios is the problem, I built this computer and have been in my bios many times using alt+F2. I will try, but i just wonder why??

is the keyboard USB ? . . if so, it will likely not be recognized during boot
