You can`t work with wireless keyboard before you boot in Windows....that`s why

If you did not enabled Legacy USB support in BIOS before you installed Logitech USB keyboard and optical mouse, there will be no possibility of user inputs until after Windows has loaded.

Yes it is USB wireless. You still need to enable Legacy USB support in BIOS for it to work at bootup. If you don't, both KB & mouse are uslesss until after Windows loaded.

Of course....so as to enable them, plug in a PS/2 keyboard >> go to BIOS >> go to Integrated peripherals >> Find

- USB Mouse Legacy support
- USB Keyboard Legacy support

Then set them to "Enabled" >> Press F10 >> Y >> Enter....

I think you'll find that there's a setting in the BIOS (probably
under Power Management) to boot the system from the
keyboard - not too unusual & not the usual act of a virus.
