    Try using CTRL, ALT, DELETE. It sounds like you may have locked your
    keyboard by accident. Once you hit CTRL, ALT, DELETE, it will bring up the
    log in page. Simply enter your password, if any, and you should be good to
    go.

    My cap lock will not let me type in lower case letters and every letter that I must hit twice will stop after my first letter befor I can go on the same with foward and back spacing


    You might have enabled the Windows "Accessibility" features, i.e., instead of pressing CTRL-ALT-DELETE at the *SAME* time, you can press CTRL, release it, press ALT, release IT, press DELETE, release it, to emulate the three-finger salute.

    Reboot your computer, to start without the "Accessibility" feature active.

    Also, try a different keyboard.
    And try the keyboard in a different computer.

    There is no room to enter a domain.


    Hi,
    I'm assuming that the operating system is XP.

    Log in to your account as you usually would. Right click on My Computer and select Properties from the list. Click on the Computer Name tab. Where it says "To rename this computer or join a domain" click on change. A new window will pop up so click on Workgroup. In the typing plane if it say's MSHOME, delete that and type WORKGROUP make sure you type it in uppercase (capital letters).
    When you've done that click OK.
    The computer will tell you that you have to restart the computer for the changes to take effect so please restart the computer.

    Once the computer has restarted you can check if the domain has changed to WORKGROUP.

    Please post back if you need anymore help.

    Regards.
