I am assuning that by the first page u mean the BIOS startup screen. if that is the case then simply disconnect all the devices connected to your computer (keyboard, mouse, printer, web camera, etc)and start the computer . if it goes through then reconnect the devices 1-by-1 and restart . this will let you know which device is failing.

lemme know if it helps

    Ways to take care of yaour keyboard


    Things You'll Need
    • Computer Keyboard
    • Cotton Swab
    • Isopropyl alcohol
      • Before doing any type of cleaning make sure to turn off your computer and disconnect the computer keyboard from it.

      • Once the keyboard is unhooked, turn it upside down and grab the can of compressed air. With the keyboard still upside down, tap it and watch all of the dust and grime fall out. Repeat this step 1 or 2 more times until nothing falls from the keyboard when you turn it upside down.

      • Take the cotton swab and dip it into the alcohol before cleaning the sides of the keyboard

  • If you want a more thorough cleaning, remove all of the keys from the keyboard and take a moist cloth and wipe away the dust. Also use the can of compressed air to vanish away grime particles.

  • Never use a wet towel on your computer keyboard


  • Turn off your computer and then unplug and reseat your keyboard. Occasionally computers will experience glitches that prevent drivers and software from loading correctly. Restarting your computer and plugging your keyboard back in will often solve the problem. If not, View your keyboard's status in the Device Manager. To access the Device Manager, open the Windows Control Panel and click on "System and Maintenance." Scroll down to the third section from the bottom and click on "Device Manager." In the menu bar at the top of the Device Manager window, press the button called "Scan for hardware changes." Windows will now scan your computer for any new or malfunctioning hardware. Once the page refreshes, go down the list of devices and click on "Keyboards." Right-click on your keyboard and select "Properties." A new screen will then pop up to tell you whether Windows thinks the device is working properly. If the system indicates the keyboard is not working properly but doesn't give you instructions on how to fix the problem, .

  • Visit your keyboard manufacturer's website and view the support or troubleshooting sections. Find the "Search Help" (or similarly named) box and enter your keyboard model number (this can be found on the bottom of your keyboard on a sticker or engraved in the plastic).

    The wireless keyboard and mouse are not working.


    • Check to ensure that the wireless receiver is plugged into your computer. Press the "Connect" button on the bottom of the receiver to attempt reconnecting your mouse and keyboard to the computer. If your mouse and keyboard use Bluetooth, ensure that your computer's Bluetooth is active and detects the mouse and keyboard.
    • Check to see if the keyboard and mouse are turned on. If the power indicator lights on the keyboard and mouse are not green, press the "Power" button to turn the keyboard and mouse on.
    • Check the batteries of the mouse and keyboard. If the batteries are dead, replace them with fresh batteries and reconnect the mouse and keyboard to the computer by pressing the "Connect" button on the bottom of the wireless receiver attached to the computer. If your mouse and keyboard use rechargeable batteries, let the batteries recharge before using the device again.
    • Uninstall and reinstall your wireless keyboard and mouse drivers. Sometimes, the Logitech drivers are at fault for a bad connection. Use the Control Panel to uninstall the old drivers, then visit the Logitech website and install the latest drivers for your keyboard and mouse.
    • Search the Logitech Support Database. If your keyboard and mouse are still failing to function properly, visit the Logitech Support website and browse the support page for your product for specific solutions.
