Also, use a PS/2 keyboard (without one of those USB->PS/2 adapters, if possible) to to avoid issues.

if you have your keyboard plugged into a USB port this will cause that type of problem until you enable it in the bIOS. You need to plug it into one of the "old" round ports up top.... green and purple I think they were. If you don't have an adapter ( usb to ps2 you need to get one. Plug it into the purple... I hope.... ps2 round slot and it should work for you on boot up.

did you try another keyboard. as strange as it might sound I used to have mouse problems on some old boards.

are you sure the board was in working order before use ?
