(usually it says press any key to boot from cd drive)
also, since the F keys don't work, I can't get into advanced boot option such as system recovery.

Oh also, when I spam the keyboard, the computer will make a loud beep noise on every key pressed.
Hello !!

Maybe the boot order is changed in the BIOS. See whether you are able to go to your BIOS if so change the Boot order to CD ROM then HDD then save and close it. Then see if you can boot from the Disk. If you can then run the Start up Repair. Run it atleast 3 to 4 times. Also see if you can go into the safe mode.

Hope this helps,
Captain

I can't get into the bios
i've tried pressingthe esc key and F keys but the computer doesn't seem to go past the logo screen.
Also I'm sure the keyboard is fine because ctrl alt del works

Run HD maker's full diag/repair CD scan: http://www.tacktech.com/display.cfm?ttid=287

If HD is failing, use Paragon Rescue Disk to copy partition or files off. http://www.paragon-software.com/home/rk-express/

If not or it repairs, Place the Win7 repair Cd in tray, start computer and tap ESC repeatedly every second.

When it brings up the one-time boot menu, have it boot from Repair CD. See if it finds an installation to repair.

If so, click through to Recovery Tools list to run Startup Repair up to 3 separate times with reboots.

If this fails, open Command Line and use DISKPART to make sure it is still marked Active. Type:
DISKPART
LIST DISK
SELECT DISK # (replace # with Win7 HD #)
LIST PARTITION
SELECT PARTITION # (for Win7 Partition #)
ACTIVE
EXIT

Now return to Recov Tools list to Run Startup Repair up to 3 separate times with reboots.

If this fails, use Paragon Rescue Kit to rescue the partition. If this fails, have it copy your data off. http://www.paragon-software.com/home/rk-express/

Then use DISKPART from CD Command line to CLEAN ALL, which will zero the HD and force Win7 DVD to autostart.

Your HD maker's Diag/Repair CD (linked above) will autostart, as will memtest86. Run both.

If hardware checks out, you can also use Partition Wizard bootable CD to autostart, then repartition for your dual boot. Rightclick on Win7 partition to Explore if files are intact. You can then Resize it to make space to install XP.

XP CD will autostart, use it to format its own partition in the space you resized. After install, use EasyBCD 2.0 beta to add Win7 to Dual Boot.
