Hi there Jack and welcome
If you hold down on a key and wait 10 seconds, do you get a constant beeping when the buffer is full?
ok, just to be sure, are you able to try a different keyboard, or confirm the keyboard is working on another computer?
To clarify, Del does not get you into the Bios correct? It just ignores it completely.
I did read Jack, I am just clarifying before giving the Diagnostics, it was not meant to offend you, but to be thorough....
If you cannot get into the Bios, then it means the chipset that's failing, and its not handing off to the bios so that can load and start the boot sequence.
You're going to have to replace the board. The only other cause for this is incorrect settings in the Bios, but no matter what you did to the Bios you can always get it to restore the defaults.
I am really sorry about this, and if you have problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
And if you can take a second to rate my service by clicking one of the stars at the top of the page, then submit, that would be greatly appreciated.
