Is there a big Padlock Icon when it do that? It seems to be a Firware Password. The previous owner must have set it up and forgot to tell you about it. You need to remove one Memory or change a higher memory to bypass that one. Info on Firmware Password http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1352

Yup. I hope it'l help you. It seems that the Fix that I told you is a taboo here since its a security issue. Waiting for my comments to be blocked.

Still having issues...
The keyboard does not respond. First i thought it was due to bluetooth kb not connecting fast enough. So i bought a Macally usb KB. That didnt work either. As i am reading more blogs, how do i verify if i have Intel based or Power PC based machine other than tear it apart? It seems like for Intel you need to remove the Cmos battery to reset the bios. What am i doing wrong? Going through multiple key holding scenarios and ofcourse replacing a ram each time, does not result in 3 chime reset indicator. I even tried left and right keys.....very frustrating! Any thoughts?
