Hello. I have a hp pavilion 751n windows xp home. I can not use my logitech wireless keyboard even to access to bios settings to enable support for usb keyboards! From boot, I press keys like F10, F11, F12, ESC, F2, F8, F9, And backspace and delete. I am a 32 bit if that makes a difference in any way. Please help me!

EDIT:I can not put in my password to access my windows xp profile. Help!

Unless USB is enabled by default...I don't believe you will be able to use a wireless keyboard.  Try a corded keyboard to get in and change your BIOS settings to enable USB devices.

 

FWIW.

If you happen to have a wired USB keyboard then try it, then you'll know.

 

If not, if the machine is old enough to have a PS2 keyboard port then go to your local thrift shop and pick up a PS2 keyboard.  Most larger thrift shops, Goodwills & Salvation Army Stores in particular, are awash in mice and keyboards of every description.  I've picked them up for $2 for a keyboard and less for a mouse.
