|"I can get into the boot menu or Bios with a PS2 keyboard".|
Are you using the PS/2 keyboard to access the BIOS (setup) screens?
Yes I am able to do this.
You may have a BIOS password enabled.
It does not ask me for a password. I am not sure exactly what this means given that fact. Is is possible that what you say is true even if it doesn't ask for one?
Have you looked at all the screens or just the ones you want to change? Clearing the CMOS with the computer unplugged should return to defaults. You will then need to reset the values in the BIOS.
I have looked at all the BIOS screens. I have cleared the CMOS and loaded failsafe settings. I have played witb the settings a lot but do not recall playing with the password setting as it didn't even ask me for one.
Is the CD drive recognised by the BIOS during the POST screens? If you don't see any post screens you may need to disable fast boot and any logos in the BIOS screens.
I am pretty sure it does as it loads all the drivers, etc. in the initial windows setup. It gets to the loading windows screen, then the screen asking me to press enter to install XP. Would it do all that if the CD drive wasn't recognized? Should I disable the logo screen so I can see for sure?
Thanks so much for trying to help me, I really appreciate it!
