When the BIOS is posting I cannot use the keyboard keys; "Enter" or
"up/dwn" arrows when trying to either start in the OS or into the Recovery Console. I also found this to be true, if I try to boot from the CD. It will not recognize the pressing of any key. Is there something in the BIOS Setup to recognize the keyboard ? OS XP Home SP 2

Thanks,

The bios boots without any input. Each board, however, has a key that opens up the bios settings pages after the POST.

Are you attempting to enter the bios setup? Or?

No, not the "SETUP", but when the screen shows the option to go
into the "OS" (Default) or go into "Recovery Console". The keyboard
will not allow me to scroll with the up/dwn arrow keys or even to use
the "Enter" key.

I would think that the keyboard is still under the direction of the bios at that time so I would try resetting the bios with the jumpers or by removing the battery.
