Default Re: invalid password

It's still difficult to determine if that is a software or hardware problem.

You can buy replacement keyboards from Amazon etc for about ?20 -?30.

This is a guide to replacing a Toshiba laptop keyboard and may even differ slightly for even other Toshiba models, but the steps are probably generic for most laptops.

PS...How did you manage to enter the correct symbols with all those errors ?

Don't understand the "relate the information" bit and how you able to enter the password into the affected computer

Default Re: invalid password

Giving it a good clean as suggested may loosen any debris. Has any liquid been spilled over the keyboard?

This problem can be caused if there is a loose connection between the keyboard cable and motherboard but this will entail opening up the laptop case - this is probably best done by your local repair shop if you do not feel confident about doing it.

Although I couldn't enter the password from the main keyboard, I was able to bring up the onscreen keyboard and enter the password using that. Once logged in I went through the alpha keys on word to find out where the problems were.

Gotcha but how were you able to get passed the password login to access that ?
