Default No PS2 keyboard recognition

Ok so I put together some new hardware that my brother bought. It gets to the BIOS screen, but does not recognize his PS2 keyboard, so he went and picked up a USB keyboard, will not recognize it either. I removed the battery for a couple hours hoping that it would clear all the BIOS, no change. Both of these pieces of hardware were new out of the box. So does anyone have any thoughts on what the problem might be

Core 2 Duo Processor E6750, LGA775 Pgk
2.66 GHz, 4MB L2 Cache, 1333 MHz FSB
Requires electrically compatible board - PCG 06

Gigabyte S-series GA-P35-DS3L

Default Re: No PS2 keyboard recognition

Does it say that no keyboard is detected or are you trying to use the keyboard to access your BIOS? I would try multiple USB ports if you haven't already. Also try using a USB port on the case that you would have hooked up to the motherboard.
