hello sajan
can you share your system specs as that helps a lot in troubleshooting.
you can clear out the CMOS by taking the following steps:
1. Turn off power to the system smps (PSU)
2. turnoff all power to the monitor, speaker and all other externally powered devices connected to the system.
3. Locate the flat button cell (battery) on your motherboard and remove it
4. Now press the power button (yes, without any power going into the pc). Obviously nothing visible will happen, but you'd have discharged any static on the computer chassis.
5. Now power up your pc and start it. It'll most likely get the keyboard this time.

hope this works for you
