3745 router does not accept any key input

I have a 3745 router that boots, displays all the boot information while booting, but after it boots and says "Press Return to get started" it dos not accept any keyboard input.

I wanted to try to boot the router in ROMMON mode to see if the baud rate is mismatched, but I am not able to use "CTRL +Break" to go into rommon.

I have removed all cards from it and it only has CISCO3745-IO-2FE blade.

Help!!!
