Dual boot option not working

This is very odd because I have had a dual boot system for more than a year now, and never had this problem before. Yesterday I installed a new LCD monitor and all of a sudden I am unable to select between Windows and Linux when booting up the system. My keyboard is "dead" until my default Linux OS has completely booted. The mouse works, but I cannot make the selection with the mouse. Here is a description of my system:

ASUS motherboard, A7N266-E
Linux Mandriva 2006
Windows XP
KDE booting with LILO (gui)
Logitech keyboard

ViewSonic VA1912 monitor (previously had a viewsonic crt monitor)

As I said, I've had the system working for about a year and a half, and the only thing different now is that I connected a new LCD monitor.

I have no idea how upgrading the monitor could effect the keyboard when booting; and at no other time.

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
