Specs: Windows Phone 8.1
My Laptop is stuck on the Windows boot manager screen BUT I use a USB keyboard which only lets me type once I get to the actual login screen.

Is there anything I can do?

You mean for BIOS screen?
why did you access for BIOS? What is the issue?
what about safe boot?

It just goes to it automatically. I can't do a safe boot because the computer won't read my keyboard until I hits the actual login screen.

Is there something wrong with the laptop's keyboard? If you can use it to get into bios setup there's sometimes an option called 'legacy USB support' or 'Dos USB support' that will allow a USB keyboard to function prior to windows loading. Check that and enable the option if it's there.

Yeah, my keyboard has been broken for years. I use a usb one. But it won't let me use it until it hits the login.

so I turn it on, the Toshiba page comes up, then it goes straight to Windows Boot Manager. And i can't exit it.

Enter the BIOS & change the USB settings so that the keyboard works from the get-go.

Please note that wireless keyboards do not work until windows drivers load to keep a wired keyboard around for such circumstances. There are some really cheap ones out there that you don't have to like in order for them to be useful alternatives. In most cases PS2 keyboards are best for this as long as the motherboard has a good PS2 jack.

Please note that any USB jack that is plugged in through an expansion hub, external, internal (front panel), and onboard that are not through the chipset are all included, will not be active until Windows drivers are loaded. Always use rear USB ports that are through the main chipset on the motherboard for your keyboard and mouse so they are available at boot up. Note also that many USB3.0 ports on early adopters of the technology were through third party chips and are not through the main chipset so that they are not active until Windows drivers are loaded at boot up.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Hiya Fingers. I respectfully disagree, I use a wireless mouse and keyboard on HP desktops, laptops and tablets and they all work while booting into the BIOS (and even after POST, such as F8 to get to Safe Mode) to make configuration changes. And it's been this way since at least 2008.

Pretty much every system these day will recognize wireless USB devices before Windows drivers are loaded.

I agree with #9. My wireless keyboard and mouse act as wired.
