    No, to see if the problem still happens in Safe Mode. If the problem doesn't appear in Safe Mode, it's a hint that it's in an optional area of Windows that is not included when you go to Safe Mode.

    I never heard of such a way to start OS

    You just turn on you monitor and press the start button.
    Please oh please explain this way to boot a computer.:confused:
    As for Password,just ignore it,then you don't have a password and
    it won't ask for one as you don't have one.

    Why would he get angry? You're trying to solve a problem!

    Press F8 at the Windows screen and select Safe Mode. See if you can enter your password.

    Now you tell me

    But do you know your Password and mean the Keyboard won't type ?
    Do you ever get to YOUR Desktop to test the keyboard.
    Are these other password users letting you use theirs to use Help and test your keyboard ?
