The function key could be damaged or stuck down. If not, try going to Device Manager. Right click on the Keyboard and choose Properties. Click on Update Driver as it might find something. Reboot the computer. If that doesn't work, go to Device Manager, right click on the keyboard, choose Uninstall, and reboot the computer. When it starts up and sees the keyboard and loads a driver(s) for it, it might fix it. Good luck.

This could be anything from a fried capacitor to a virus. You indicate having ruled out a bad power supply. I assume you can not get to a recovery partition.

You might as well see if you can get the machine running, just to narrow down, possibly rule out hardware malfunction. Here is the download site for creation of a bootable USB flashdrive. If you can use the flash drive to get the computer running, perhaps the problem is not a bad motherboard.


If a virus has taken you down, you might try the Norton Bootable recovery tool. Yes, it goes on another USB stick. If your computer will run (not a bad motherboard), this software should boot it and scan it for a virus.


Here is a generic page about non booting computer rescue. I thinki you have a computer running XP. You might check dust accumulation inside it.

Here What to Do When Your Computer Shuts Off During Startup

Once you eliminate a physical cause and a virus, see if you can run chkdsk, boot to safe mode, or access the recovery partition. At some point, you may have to try TestDis, Easeus, or Paragon utilities.

If the password is a power on BIOS password then you have to locate a jumper on the motherboard. If the password is windows related the operating system is XP and you can logon as an admin and change it if the old user has not defeated this feature.

Make sure u typed your user name correctly. While entering password make sure your caps key is off.

If you really forgot your password, on the login screen, if only your user name is displaying, press control + alt + delete, u will get a checkbox to enter your user name, here enter administrator for user name and press enter. If administrator account is not assigned with any password, you will be able to login as administrator then u can change password of any user in the system or create new users.
