Default Bios

I've been having problems with my BIOS on boot up, whenever i enter BIOS using the delete key as soon as the screen to configure it comes up my keyboard locks up but the num lock stays on. Its kind of like the BIOS freezes or something really strange.

is there a way to fix this?

Turns out it was the BIOS, i got winflash to work and updated, it was really weird, Didn't know i had to place the .bin file for the update in the actual winflash dir for it to open :P
