Award BIOS not detecting keyboard on cold boot

Hello everyone!

I just upgraded up computer to a K6-200 with 32 MBs of RAM and a 4 MB video card (Award BIOS v4.51PG).  Now, everytime I do a COLD boot (e.g. turn on the power), the BIOS doesn't detect that the keyboard is there.  If I hit RESET, it will recognize it on the second pass.  I have seen this happen at my school too?  My keyboard is only 3 months old (its a 104 key Windows 95 keyboard) and my old BIOS had no problem what-so-ever detecting my keyboard.
