Boot problem installing from CD

Hi
Got a desktop that needs windows XP Pro reinstalled on it. Problem is it will not respond to "press any key to boot from CD", jsut hangs there and then boots up from the hard drive.
Check the bios settings and they seem ok. Must be something simple I'm missing as I've never come across this problem.
Any suggestions gratefully accepted.
Thanks a lot guys.

If the keyboard is a USB type or a wireless USB keyboard it will not work you need to install a PS2 keyboard

PS2 keyboard being used. Done this so many times and never had this problem.
