Question: Computer is asking to pair a bluetooth keyboard I dont have?

I cannot access my macbook air with OSsierra because it is asking to pair a bluetooth keyboard. I am aware that this computer is starting to degrade (I have had it for almost 7 years), but I really need to access my files. I am not sure of the issue at all. plz give me some ideas. Cant even boot because it gets stuck asking for a bluetooth keyboard (already connected a mouse in the usb)

Restart the computer holding down the command - option/alt - P - R keys before the gray screen appears. Continue to hold until you hear the startup chime for the second time. You may need to do this several times.
