> BIOS: can't get into the BIOS setup to reset it
I would Guess this is Your Whole Problem ! We Need to Understand Why This Is !
Try another KeyBoard &/or Splitter
<CTRL><ATL><ESC>(Not DEL) to Enter BIOS During BootUp (for Neophytes Reading This)
Use a Splitter that has Ends Labeled "KeyBoard" & "Mouse"
Plug into Wrong Ends to switch the Signals.
Like The IDE Hard Drive Connector,
The Mouse Clock & Data Signals are Reversed with those of the KeyBoard @ the PS/2 Connector.
A Splitter without the Ends Labeled is A Straight thur "Y" Cable.
& wouldn't Work any better than just trying to plug the device straight into the I-Opener PS/2 Port.
