USB or PS2 keyboard?

Can you access the BIOS, usually there will be message telling you what key to press but F1, F2, F10 and Del are all viable options.

would it be a faulty motherboard or a virus stopping me from using the "R" key...

what kind of keyboards?
if USB you need the BIOS set USB legacy enabled.
or use a PS2 keyboard if you machine has a port.
