Have you tried using a different keyboard, You bios maybe set so that the keyboard will not work when the computer is booting up.

Boot your computer using your OS. I had the same problem, and all it took was for me to boot the PC on the current OS, and reinstall it, and it was fine after that

A BIOS checksum error almost always means that the batter on the motherboard is no good. Replace it and try again.
