    There's a problem with my Laptop's Keyboard


    I am stuck at the login screen of my laptop right now. Here's the story: I closed the laptop screen when I went to eat lunch. The Laptop worked perfectly fine. When I came back, the keyboard acted a bit strange. All my keys are working except the numbers and letters when I tried to type in my password to log back in. I tried using the on-screen keyboard but it still does not work. Can someone please help me!!

    Two or more programs possibly clashed, Windows & keyboard lost this battle. Have you cold-powered down and cold-booted back up yet?

    It did not work. That is why I created a forum account to ask for some help.
