QuestionKeyboard won't work until Windows starts, help!!

Please can someone help. My keyboard won't start working on my new PC until Windows starts. That means I can't access the BIOS settings or install a new OS as you need the keyboard to do so.
No-one seems to have the answer to this problem, all I keep getting is 'well it should work, just press the right key for the BIOS or maybe try another keyboard'. Yeah thanks guys but I've already tried that, plus anything else I can think of, even changing from a USB keyboard to a PS2 one!! Nothing works. Once Windows has started it's fine, just completely dead before then.
It worked fine on my old PC and the one before that. Any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated.
Handle every stressful situation like a dog..... if you can't eat it or hump it, pi$$ on it & walk away!!
