It does sound like a BIOS password issue. One thing to check...sometimes in the BIOS the USB devices don't work before you get the password entered, so if you do have a USB keyboard, you may need to find a PS2 style to get past it.
Another thing is to find the jumper on the motherboard and erase the BIOS password. Get the model of the motherboard (if you have it), or call the manufacturer of the computer and they should be able to help you.
Hope this helps.
I am working on a computer and when I boot it up it goes to a black screen and asks for a password --- but I am unable to type anything at all.
What happened is someone I know has a computer and her daughter came by last week and started screwing with the thing and now we cant even get into the bios.
So my questions are do you think the keyboard is bad and that is why I cant type anything --- and how do I get past the password cause she has no Idea what her daughter set it up for and the daughter didn't know she even did it so I need to get passed it to to be able to shut it off (which is in the bios I think right)
Any help would be great thanks all
