Welcome to Seven Forums, first of all! Let's see what we can do to help you. I have a set of questions for you:

1. Do you have any external hard drives plugged into the computer? If so, try unplugging them and rebooting. Sometimes USB hard drives are thought to be bootable by the BIOS yet Windows cannot run off a USB device. Shame. Makes no sense, but oh well.

2. It sounds like you can access your BIOS. Is your keyboard plugged in via a PS/2 (round) connection or a USB connection?

3. When you say nothing happens when you try to "press any key", does it just sit there and eventually disappear after a few seconds since nothing happened and try to boot normally or does it freeze altogether?

Thanks!
