Preferred Solution: keyboard: I cant type in my password

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi,

I ran into an extremely frustrating situation: somehow the US keyboard layout disappeared from the list of installed layouts. Without it, I can't type my password at the login screen. I was left with a Hebrew keyboard, which has Hebrew letters and uppercase English letters. Unfortunately my password was in lowercase.
Any ideas before I re-install?

Thanks,

Ron

i have a gateway laptop that for some reason wont type anything in the password box to log into windows. the mouse works fine, keyboard works everywhere else but that password box. the onboard keyboard doesn't work either, i click apply but nothing happens, I've Tried F8 and did all the safe modes, password still cant be entered. i've pretty much tried every option in F8, when i try to do recovery it has an error sometimes ive done it more than a few times to see if it changes. a few times the error didn't show, but nothing changed for the login situation, system recovery doesn't do anything either.

note. i can't log into the computer at all and everywhere all my responses have been to download software or go to run/ system manager, ext. ext. i can't do any of that because i cant log on

I have just installed a linksys wireless router onto my desktop computer to add a wireless laptop and for some reason, when the User Logon screen comes up. The hand cursor never becomes a cursor for me to type in passowords to user accounts. I went into safe mode and then into control panel and deleted the passwords for each user acct and now I can get into the accounts but how can I add the passwords again and be able to type them in. We have 3 user accounts on this pc and would like to have them password protected.

Any suggestions would be apreciated!
Thanks!

PS
all pc's are online and working fine...

So I'm planning on purchasing a new keyboard since I feel like my Logitech keyboard is already old. I was wondering if I should choose the Mac-style keyboards (Slim Keyboard) or still the Soft-touch Logitech Keyboards. I currently have the Logitech Y-UR83 Classic Touch Keyboard. Which one should I buy?

A:What type of Keyboard should I buy?

Go to a store the sells keyboards and has a selection to demo. Pick the one that suits you. A keyboard is all personal preference.

My keyboard does not let me input a key more than once. for example, if i am typing the word letter. it does not let me type in the 2nd t. the only way i could add the 2 letter is if i use an entirely diferent buton. but this is not only specific to leters. even the backspace key and space bar, i canot type seamlesly. you can se in this and the last sentance that every word that neds two of the same keys, it doesn't work. I have to use the curser afterwards to ad in the leter i ned. even the space bar and backspace key does not work twice in a row.

is this a hardware isue or is it somekind of software problem?

it's so anoying. i can't even type www. without takeing like 20 seconds. help please!

thanks!
 

A:keyboard does not let me type same key twice

Borrow another keyboard and try. That is the simplest way of narrowing it down.

Check your setting under Accessibility Options (or whatever XP calls it - I use Vista).

There are settings there to ignore repeated keystrokes.

And I have to type with my tablet...being a Uni student this is...a bloody pain. I have a paper to type, and the laptops from tech support are crap, so that's why I'm here.

Anyway, first there was a BSOD (after visiting youtube...), then when it restarted, and once I logged in, the keyboard would not type. (Yes, that means it works on the log in screen, and the account says its installed...but won't work for my account.)

I'm guessing it's a connective problem, but...I've tried using everything I could think of. But, yeah I'm done; it's hard tying with a tablet...

A:Keyboard Will Not Type (different)

Press F8 bootup and choose Fix Your Computer. This will do a Startup Repair. If that fails, Can you boot into Safe Mode? If that still doesn't work, then load Windows, go to Start/Search and type SFC /scannow (or copy and paste it from a notepad file) and press enter. This will replace any missing files.

I've got a Logisys Keyboard that will not work when I plug it into my USB Port (Any of them)... My USB Ports *DO* work (Ive tested that). It gets power (its an illuminated one) but will not type. However, it came with a USB -> PS2 Converter and it works fine if I plug it in that way.. but, the PS2 Converter snapped (long story), and now I am without a keyboard. Anyone know why it doesn't work just straight USB?
 

A:USB Keyboard Won't Type

Sometimes with those USB devices you must install the software that came with it for them to work. Did the keyboard come with any software?

I was helping a neighbour reinstall windows xp pro on his older computer which had become unusable because of viruses. While trying to type in the activation code, I found that the z key would not produce any response, so I replaced it with another keyboard and the same things happened, in fact I tried 4 keyboards in all (3 were ps2 and 1 was USB) and they all had the same problem when trying to type the letter z. Any ideas?
 

A:Keyboard will not type z

Hey I really have no hear such problem before. It a really very serious problem. I think the activation code which you are going to enter is incorrect. Not only 'z' key is working what about another keys. I think it will be your installing or CD from which you are installing problem. You have to try it from another CD.

I have Windows XP Media Center and I cannot type in my password.

The keyboard works because it receives a signal from the wireless adaptor but it will not allow to enter the password.

I have tried putting it in safe mode but still nothing.

I don't know of anything else to do. I thought about rebooting but I'm afraid I will lose all of my files.

Please help as soon as possible.

I see you have posted here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/310752/google-redirect-trojan-and-or-virus/ with the same problem as the original poster. First of all, you should not reply in somebody else's malware topic.Second, if your computer is infected....Please post a in the Am I infected? What do I do? sub-forum with a description of your problem, the steps taken so far, and a link back to this topic (they will want to know why you suspect malware).Please note: the Malware Response team are always overwhelmed, and it could take a few days to get your first reply. Just be patient and don't "bump" your topic by replying to it, as that will only further delay a response (MRT members are looking for topics with 0 replies...if you reply to your own first, it will appear that you are already receiving help and thus delay receiving actual help).If you still have problems after being declared clean, they'll send you back here.Good luck.

The only possible solution I've found is this:

Click Start and type cmd in the Search field.

Right-click cmd and choose Run as Administrator then accept the UAC prompt.

Type regsvr32 shgina.dll then press Enter to run the command.

Type Exit and press Enter to close the command shell then restart your computer.

A:keyboard- when I type sometimes applications appear.

This happens when, while you are typing a doc or like in a post like in here?

The keyboard on my Dell 1501, will not the letters I,O,P when I press them. My laptop is older, just three years, and has had moderate use, mainly my husband looking for information. It has the Vista program, I know, but it has worked basically fine for the little use it gets. Nothing has been spilled on it, could they be worn out/

Is there anyway to take the keyboard cover off without damaging it and look to see if there is some type of debris blocking the connection?

A:Looking for a silent type keyboard

The newer wireless ones are lasting more than a year.
This is a product you should see and test.
The silent one can be a pain, if they don't fit your comfort zone

Hi Guys,

I have a wireless keyboard with touchpad. The touchpad works fine but the keys don't type.

I have tested the keyboard on another computer and it works fine, I also tested another keyboard on this PC and it also didn't work.

I have updated drivers but the problem still persists.

Yesterday, I removed some malware (Iminent?) and I'm guessing this is the only thing which could have caused this problem.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated

Thanks,
Si

I have bought a new computer with Windows 7 Premium Home 64-bit OS pre-installed. I made the mistake of specifying my keyboard type as US during the initial setup. I need to change it to Japanese type. I followed the steps mentioned in the help documentation to select the desired keyboard type after clicking the Change Keyboard button on the Keyboard Settings window. But it did not work. I am unable to enter Japanese text through my keyboard. Kindly help!

A:How can I change the keyboard type

Step-by-step:

1.) Click your Start Orb
2.) Click Control Panel
3.) In "Category" mode, click "Change Keyboards or other input methods" below Clock, Language, and Region
4.) On the small screen that pops up, click the "Change Keyboards" button
5.) Near the middle-right side of the next screen that pops up, click the "Add" button
6.) Find Japanese, click the "+" sign next to it.
7.) Click the "+" next to "Keyboard" and check the checkbox next to Japanese
8.) Click OK.
9.) On the next screen, change your default input language at the top, and once again, click Ok.

Hi all
I finally figured out how to get spanish accents on my keyboard AltGR + letter. I can now write é á í etc fine!
 
However, I can't seem to write the ñ character, even when using the Alt + 165  as suggested by all the google results.
I've even tried the UK extended keyboard.
 
Also, more pressingly perhaps, is that I can't write the # symbol. I use Alt + 3 (where the # is on the key above the number 3) but it gives me the british pound sign: £
 
How can I write these two characters without having do download some program or copying and pasting them from the internet! Thank you in advance

I don't have an answer for most of your topic. But you say this is a US keyboard and "Also, more pressingly perhaps, is that I can't write the # symbol. I use Alt + 3 (where the # is on the key above the number 3)".Would not the # symbol on a US keyboard be Shift + number three key? Not Alt + number three key?

A:Keyboard type on Satellite M30X-130

Satellite M30X is pretty old notebook model so I think you should not have big problems to obtain new keyboard. I had similar problem on my old Satellite M70 and I bought new keyboard on eBay.

At this time keyboards were pretty similar and one keyboard could be used on few notebook models. eBay is good place to find keyboards and different hardware parts for old notebook models.
Unfortunately I cannot help you with this keyboard check so if you find specification that says it is compatible with M30X you can buy it.

Don't spend a lot of money for it. as I wrote before on eBay you can find keyboards for reasonable price.

I have a Compaq laptop model Presario cq 56 that some of the letter keys wont type. The ones it wont type are; 6 7 y u h j m n. Would anyone know what would cause that? Ive noticed those letters run in a diagonal line from left to right down the keyboard. Would it be a blown sensor or something like that?

Sorry if this is in the wrong category.. :P
anyway, i'm typing this from my laptop because my desktop computer simply won't let me type. The keyboard is fine, i think, it's just that when i type a letter in a text box it doesn't make letters. Instead, it either selects something from the top menu (such as File, Edit, View, Insert, Help, etc., depending on which key i type) or it plays that *bump* noise--the noise Windows XP makes when you try to backspace at the beginning of a text box or something like that. But my keyboard still works perfectly in every other way. So i do not think it's that. If you know how to fix this i'd greatly appreciate it! Thank you!

On my Dell Inspiron 1501 laptop I've noticed within the last week or so that whenever I try to type something that some letters don't actually get typed whenever they're pressed. I know the keys aren't sticky or anything. And I've already looked under the Device Manager for the keyboard and it said everything was working fine. I've also already tried to update my driver, but it said it was already updated.

If someone could please help me, I would really appreciate it.

Hi all. I'm confused. How do you do ALT codes without the numeric keypad? I mean the Fn key is there, but then what? I have since found that you can insert them via the on screen touch keyboard, but surely you can still do this on the keyboard right? What I want to type is which is usually Fn + ALT + 130. I contacted HP support who had no idea what-so-ever. I've done a search of the site and couldn't find anything either. Anyone got any answers? Thanks, Pony

A:Want to type é but Keyboard has no Numeric Keypad

Hello Pony, I don't have an answer to make the keyboard create a numpad but I read about adding Scripts to turn certain keys into the numpad. I have not used those.I do use a work around that will hopefully help a little. Turn on the On Screen Keyboard.Type in the Search bar Run and select it.Type the letters OSK and hit Enter.When the keyboard opens, click on Options.  When the dialog box opens, tick the box for Turn on Numeric Keypad.Hit OK.  Select the Numlock key on the on screen keyboard to show the numpad.One the physical keyboard, hold the Alt key down and click on 0233 of the On Screen Numpad.( I just use the Alt key shortcuts rather than Fn+Alt. Its just easier)   Hope that helps.

Is there an easy way for me to type in French, including accents on a USA keyboard, other than memorizing the alt codes?

A:Type French easily on USA keyboard?

You could make yourself a character store (e.g. on a notepad) from the character map that you find in All Programs > Accessories > Ease of Access. Then you copy the characters from there and paste it into the text. That is not very convenient either, but gets the job done for the occasional email or so. The notpad shortcut you can pin to the taskbar for easy access.

But if you need it frequently, I would get a French keyboard and make the appropriate settings (which you can easily switch back and forth). E.g. I am right now typing from a German keyboard - in Florida.

Welcome to the forums:

Based on what you have said, it looks like your keyboard is not sending the keystrokes to the system.

Have you tried to get into your bios to see if the keyboard works there?
Usually it is f1 f2 f10 or the Esc or Del key to go into bios when you first turn the machine on.

Let us know.
Also, you might want to fill in your system specifications so that others can see your model number and such for helping you.

I can move/see the mouse pointer but can't select anything. I can use the arrow keys to switch between the Lock screen and Login screen - but that's it. Can't access the power/restart icon or anything.

I have to hold the power button and force a restart. Today I already tried 3 restarts (cold boots) and I still can't get to where I can enter my PIN. This is on a Microsoft Account (not local account).

Has anyone else seen this behavior?
EDIT: I'm back in. I noticed that when WIN works correctly, the password/PIN box is highlighted so you can just type in your info without actually selecting the box. When WIN is misbehaving, the password/PIN box is not highlighted.

This is happening more and more frequently after I wake up my computer from Sleep Mode.  It will open to the sign in screen, but it won't allow me to type in the Password.  The white area where you type in passwords just remains blank.  I have to go to Switch User and Restart Computer in order to get to the sign in screen and then it works.  Has anyone else had this problem?

A:Can't type in Password after Sleep mode

You may want reviews some material about sleep mode. What it really means is that you should not use sleep mode unless you have a very good reason to want it.http://www.pcworld.com/article/256309/tweeking_windows_7s_sleeping_habits.html(Ignore the ads)QuoteBut first, let me explain the difference between sleep and hibernation. When a PC enters sleep mode, it saves electricity by shutting down most of its components. But it uses some power to keep Windows, running programs, and data in RAM, allowing it to wake up almost instantly. When a PC hibernates, it copies everything in RAM to the hard drive, than shuts down the hardware completely. It takes longer to wake up, but while it's down it saves even more power.The amount of true power saving is not much anyway.

hey
I havent been here for awhile but whenever i've had a question you guys have helped me out.... This is a weird one though...Ok, Im trying to dual-boot xp pro and ubuntu (the latest version). I can't seem to use the console though. I understand Unbuntu doesn't use root but when I type "su" and it prompts me for a password I type my user password and it says its invalid. But the weird part is when im typing no password shows up...not even little stars....Im new to linux so I might be missing something...any help is much appreciated thanks
 

A:not able to type root password when prompted

The asterisks are not supposed to show up so no one can find out the length of your password - this is standard behaviour on unix systems.

When you do su without a username parameter, then it is the root password you have to type in. Have you tried an empty password?

BTW, you should make a habit out of using "su -" instead of plain "su".

A:Cannot Type Password To Start Windows

Never mind the problem has been fixed. It was a bad keyboad. I don't understand how the keyboard would work perfectly except when logging on but that was it.

Using a Microsoft Wireless Keyboard 3000 v2.0.

Every time I type a double E, I only get a single one, unless I pause between each keypress. Other letters don't seem to do it (I suppose I might type double Es faster?). Those of you with a background in electronics will know about "debouncing" - ignoring two very close together signals from a switch as it mechanically "bounces" off the contacts. I'm thinking maybe the setting is too long for this keyboard?

A:Keyboard too slow - can't type double E quickly

Control Panel> Keyboard> Character repeat, you have two settings; Repeat delay and Repeat rate.
Changing Repeat delay to >>Short should correct this.

This started about a month ago and is slowly driving me insane.
Regular function as in office word or notepad or photoshop no problem
but internet email etc extremely lagged. Even mouse seems slower in internet

A:Lag between type on keyboard and appearance on screen internet only

I'd take a look at the add-ons in IE...and disable such one by one, checking for changed behavior.

Hello, techguys! I have a weird problem. My laptop (HP Pavilion dv6000 running Vista Ultimate) has occasions where I can't type certain letters in a google search box, but when I switch to another tab that's open, it types normally. This has happened 3 or 4 times in the last couple of weeks. I can't imagine that cleaning is an issue, since it types normally in another browser tab. This has me baffled. Any ideas? Thanks!

This is a laptop Advanta brand. After keyboard crush I exchange for another one. Part of the keys working fine, part not. Some of them shows upper marks, which usually goes with Shift. Other shows numbers instead of letters. Totally mess.

I connected regular keobard just for the test and works fine.

Is this a keyboard problem? (Seller assures 100% work ) Or rather computer system?

What eventually I can check?

Often, I cannot type and dialog boxes open up instead.  For Example if I type the letter D then dialog box for favorites open.  If I type the letter P the print menus appears.  It seems like the control key is stuck or something.  This gets very annoying because I have to reboot my system.  Am I infected?
 
 
Also I cannot change my search engine preference.  It is stuck on Yahoo and I had it set to Google.

A:Cannot Type on Keyboard dialog boxes open up instead

What type of computer do you have - desktop or laptop ?  Make and model ?
 
It does sound like your diagnosis is very probably correct and to check it can you connect another keyboard ?  Basic USB keyboards are very cheap if you can't beg, borrow or steal one to try. External USB keyboards will work with a laptop.
 
If you have a desktop and it turns out the Control key is stuck I would just replace the keyboard. You can do the same for a laptop but you need to check the manual, and possibly the service manual if you can find one on-line, to see what is involved. Alternatively, search on YouTube for 'Make and model, replace keyboard' and you are almost certain to find a video which will show you what is involved. Again, laptop keyboards are generally fairly cheap, it is just the amount of work involved in changing that makes it hard but even this varies dramatically from one model to another.

If you open Mozilla or Explorer in order to search for something on the Internet, the keyboard only types Numbers.
