Do you have an extra PS2 keyboard laying around? I would try using one of those.

You've been helped by a 14 year old.

Does it work after boot?

If so then there might be a bios setting like legacy usb that may help.

Otherwise you need a backup ps/2 for times when you need to access bios.

Hang up and live.
