Default keyboard not working in bios!

This is my first build, and post here as well, so please be understanding of my limited personal database.

My new PC:

Gigabyte GA P35-DS3R Rev. 2.1
Intel E5200
Arctic Cooler Freezer 7 Pro
4X1GB OCZ Platinum DDR2 PC6400 800Mhz
Asus EAH3450/DI/256mb
Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 500GB
OCZ StealthXStream 600w
Antec Three Hundred
Microsoft 4000 USB keyboard

My problem:

The keyboard doesn't work at all when the bios is running. The bios gets to the messages: 'Boot from CD/DVD:' and 'DISK BOOT FAILURE, INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER' So I put the system disk in, but can't press 'enter' as I have no keyboard function, and then recieve the message: 'Press any key to startup from XPressRecovery2'...... repeatedly, but can't do a thing without functioning keys!

Any advice would be most appreciated at this point!

P.S. The mobo was purchased pre-owned, if that makes a difference (which I think that it may)
