What kind of keyboard are you using? If USB, try an older PS/2. Many of those older boards wouldn't recognize USB until Windows started and loaded the driver.

That motherboard was used in Gateway 9310x PCs but is no longer supported by Gateway that I could find. What third-party updates are available, your BIOS version is already newer. I wouldn't trust third-party updates anyway unless you personally know the source.

You're welcome.

Yeah, it is a bit outdated and not many BIOS options were allowed by OEMs.
