Do NOT use a wireless keyboard.
Do NOT use a front USB port or one that runs through a USB hub, including internal hubs and 3rd party USB motherboard ports (only USB ports directly on the chipset will be active at that boot stage).
PS2 keyboards are good if you have one and there is a port for it. Otherwise follow above and try the USB wired keyboard on more than one USB port. On many early motherboards that included USB3 ports, some and sometimes all USB3 ports ran through 3rd party USB controllers. Drivers for these are not fully functional until after Windows drivers are loaded. Because of this, if you have USB2 and USB3 ports, use one of the rear USB2 ports.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

What do you mean your keyboard isn't turning on? You don't have to turn a keyboard on. (Well, you do some rechargeable wireless ones but you would turn them on before starting the computer.)

A few more details about your hardware might help.

"wich means that i cant press esc when it says i should"
Toggle not press.

In other words, repeatably click the esc button until you get the bios entry screen.

Is there a PS/2 keyboard port in the machine? As mentioned, you didn't specify much about your hardware.
