Windows 7: BIOS Problems

BIOS Problems

Hello, my computer when being booted up sits for about 30-45 seconds then goes to the welcome screen and turns on. My BIOS will not work. I need to change my primary graphics adapter and apparently need to do it in bios since its currently disabled. Does anyone know how to fix this? Ive tried pressing the keys to open it and it does nothing. When I force shut down my computer and you would receive the startup menu recommending safe mode etc my keyboard lights up and if I press enter it will bypass the 30 second count down before starting up my computer, but my monitor does not identify until the welcome screen and BIOS will not start. Any help will be appreciated. Thank you. Should I get 'professional' help with this problem instead of messing with it myself? Because I need the graphics card changed.

Welcome to SF. Please give us some details on your system, are you using a wireless or wired mouse and keyboard? If wired are they plugged into the back IO ports or a usb hub. Take the time and fill out your system spec's for us and it will benefit all.
First thing to do is find a wired keyboard and use only the usb ports on the back or a ps2 plug is that style. This will allow the keyboard to be recognized by tapping delete on start up to enter your bios!
