My computer is homebuilt, and every time I try to boot it up, I get to the intial screen that says:

Press DEL to run Setup
Press F8 for BBS POPUP

and the whole thing freezes. No keyboard commands work, though all lights on the tower are active.

Pressing DEL or F8 BEFORE getting to that screen yields a change:

Entering Setup...

or

Go-! > Boot Menu

respectively, and it freezes once again.

Any suggestions?


Accessible stats:
CPU: Intel Pentium 4 2.4GHz

The computer's only about 2 years old.

Motherboard (I'm guessing):

GeForce FX 5500 BIOS
Version 4.34.20.69.00
Copyright 1996-2003 NVIDIA Corp.
256 MB of RAM


Got that from hitting Pause Break while my computer was booting.


Also on the frozen bootup screen:

AMIBIOS (c) 2005 American Megatrends, Inc.
Release 12/13/2005
CPU : Intel (R) Pentium (R) 4 CPU 2.40 GHz


then at the bottom of the screen:

(c) American Megatrends, Inc.
63-0100-001131-00101111-121305-P4M800+-P4M800PRO-M478-Y2KC



NEW INFO:
Can't access my BIOS.
Looked up three different keys to open it, and none work.
