    I used to be able to get to the BIOS setup utility, and at that time the keyboard worked fine.

    Phoenix BIOS 4.0 Release 6.0 copyright 1995-1998 Phoenix Tech. Pentium II - I'M.

    When I press F1 for setup, the BIOS setup utility comes up. My problem is when it comes up it locks out the keyboard. I then have no choise but to reboot to use the computer.

    The computer works fine in every other aspect. I am running WIN98.

    Can you help me solve the keyboard lockout problem?
    Thanks,

    First thing you should do is try another keyboard on that computer and try your keyboard on another computer.

    What happens in windows when you hit F1? Is the key sticking perhaps?

    The F1 key works fine. I get windows help. In this applacation I get MSN help.

    The whole keyboard is locked out ONLY when the BIOS setup utility comes on screen,
