I am using Windows 10 and I have a logitech K120 keyboard. Just recently I get a message during start up that there is a keyboard interface error, press F1 to continue. It works fine after I press F1. Could this be the USB connection ? Or is it time for a new keyboard ?

I'd say it could be either a USB port problem, a keyboard problem, or (very unlikely) both.

It's easy enough to test out the USB port theory. Move it to another port and see if the problem persists. If it does then it is most likely some subtle thing starting to go wonky with the keyboard itself.

As I said, you can change that alarm in the BIOS settings.

 

Are you sure it says the problem is the keyboard... Maybe it is telling that your Hard Drive WILL fail, press F1 to resume.

The message says keyboard interface error. Everything is working fine I don't see any problem at all with this computer.

Configure your BIOS to enable USB legacy.
