You probably need a PS2 keyboard to get into the BIOS. The USB drivers are not fully installed.

Sometimes you have to enable USB keyboard support. Assuming you have a regular PS/2 keyboard port, use one of those keyboards to get into cmos/bios setup and see if that is what you need to do.

It could also be the PC is locking up due to some other problem and that's why the KB isn't working.

An adapter may not work unless the keyboard was designed to work with one. Best to just get a PS/2 keyboard. You should be able to get one cheap at a thrift shop like goodwill.
