Default Xp Sp2

I have windows xp sp2 and I can't boot from cd or go into safe mode becuase it doesn't detect any keys I press the only time the computer detects the keyboard is to enter the bios setup or to enter a user password. The computer doesn't detect the cd i put into it while on the desktop. The Computer is running really really slow and making applications not respond and there is frequent freezing.

Specs
XP Home SP2
Intel Pentium 4
P4MAM2-V motherboard w/ integrated sound card
Seagate 320 gb hard drive-5 monthes old
2 gb ram(1 gb-5 monthes old)
Nvidia Geforce 6600GT
1 DVD Drive
1 Floppy Drive

P.S. Is there any software that can deflect a virus and/or tell where the virus came from

Yeah, I would assume its a virus. I would suggest downloading AVG free and running it in safe mode, but I see that is not an option.

Download AVG anyway if you can and do a full scan. I am quite certain you will find something.

The CD should boot. Make sure in the BIOS, you have it set to boot from the CD first

If you are able to enter the bios by pressing Delete then why can you not boot to safe mode by pressing F8??

If you can not enter safe mode then I think the problem lies elsewhere than the keyboard.

I really have no idea as I have never seen an "Apple keyboard"

If the plug is compatible give it a try, you never know.
