There is no such option in my BIOS selections.

I checked every sub selection.  I found no options for the keyboard.

When I hit ESC on Boot up I get the menu which I sent a shot of.

I went through every option and saw nothing like the screen shot you have.

 

I must be missing something...

 

 

Thanks for the help.
