Trying to set up a new computer but as soon as the BIOs screen comes up it asks to press delete to enter set up but my keyboard isn't responding and the keyboard works on 2 other computers. The connections are all correct but still nothing. ANY input at all would greatly be appreciated!

Hi Thumper32k, and welcome to BC.

Is this a custom build or manufactured machine? If it is one that you built try clearing the CMOS.

It usually helps if you provide your spec.

Also, some new computers are beginning to change the default key for entering the BIos. I guess you have the manual an have already figured that out? Mine for example, purchase in the last couple of months, needs the F2 key.

It has always varied from manufacturer to manufacturer of the BIOS.

Are the keyboard and mouse PS2 or USB. USB has been known to be slow to be recognized - and this may prevent you from entering the BIOS with it. Also, if they are USB, ensure that USB legacy support is turned on in the BIOS.
