Is my computer possessed? My BIOS has a mind of it's own!

I've got a tower (AMD 3000+ with a gigabyte motherboard, 3/4ths of a gig of ram, etc.) that I'm trying to set up for a media center. The thing is, the first screen (where it's checking the ram) the keyboard works fine. I can go and edit my bios settings, save and exit, etc. However, on the next screen (where I have the option of booting from CD and such) keyboard input ceases to be.

What's going on? I go into the bios, tell it (just as an example) to not boot from the drive that's in there, at all. Ever. And then I reboot it, double check it in the bios settings again, reboot, and IT BOOTS FROM THE HARD DRIVE!!! I can't stop it (remember, no keyboard input at this point) and when I get to windows, I can't do anything either (keyboard...). How is this happining? I don't think my bios battery is wearing out - I still have good accurate time. What in gods name could be causing this?
Thanks for the help!
