  1. While my now injured friend :)wave: ) was laptop sitting, he desided to enable power-on password, and cnange my windows log-on password. He then forgot what the log-on was. Did I say only injured? I tried entering what he thought it may be then gave up. Maybe a week later I go to give it another shot and now when the I try to enter the power-on password, the keys seem to stick, when I try to push P it types two or more. All the keys do this, it won't allow me to backspace and when max space is used it beeps. What the heck is going on? How do I fix it?

    Do you mean BIOS password or the log in screen?

    Get a new keyboard.

    Unless you feel like buying expensive software then there is no hope for you getting to your account unless you friend is the admin then he can change it for you

    My laptop is a 2005 HP DV8000. He put a power on password, bios password, and changed the windows log on password, ( not the user ). He remembered what the pwr on and bios pw was and was able to get to the windows log on but was unable to remember that pw. So I put it aside then when I came back to it My keyboard and it seemed laptop was not the same. No I didn't think to use another keyboard, all honesty I'm not very tech or on the computer very much (shoot I'm barely understanding the big deal over not liking dial up- don't laugh), so ps2 keyboard and special extras are new to me. I do know that I'm smart enough that when I'm not sure what something means or to say yes or no, I get scared and back out of it or cancel. I will try the keyboard suggestion and see where it goes. (And yes I am positive it was a "friend".:monkey: )
