deskpro EB/SB won't boot

In fact, can't even get a DOS prompt. The screen simply says "162 - System options not set", and in the bottom right-hand corner is the invitation to the F10 Setup, which when pressed changes to bold letters saying "setup" but no further response, there's no response to any key combination etc on the two keyboards I've tried either. I've tried a new CMOS battery and used the jumpers to clear CMOS, but to no avail.

It's a second-hand comp, running a pentium II and has a Windows 98 sticker on the case.

This sounds like a classic case of a failed BIOS flash!
