PS you can get a USB to ps2 adapter so it fits in ps2 keyboard port at the back of comp

USB keyboard,,,, the instructions are normally bottom right, if you do not know how to navigate BIOS. check pages other than password or default you do not need to go into these to find it

but if you have a problem you can always convert the USB keyboard connector to a PS2 type - any good computer shop will have a little adapter that does the job. Then you don't have to worry - plug the adapter into your machine's PS2 port and stick the USB plug into it.

Make sure you do this before you boot the computer.
