I'll have to make this short since i'm using the on-screen keyboard.
Earlier today, my comp. froze so I restarted it. on the login screen, when i try to put in password, it freezes the mouse nd keyboard. when i tried another set, same problem. i got this far by using my pass. reset disc, and just using the on-screen keyboard.
Does anyone have any suggestions that doesn't involve typing


Thanks

Sorry, I wasn't being clear earlier since I was using the On-Screen keyboard for Windows. I don't think the keyboard is the problem. I'm in xPUD right now, and I'm typing this with it. I think its something to do with windows.

Replacing the keyboard is the cheapest and less labor intensive part of this troubleshooting.

Well...your thread title indicates that "keyboard freezes Windows", which, if true...indicates that it's a keyboard problem.

If you believe that something other than the keyboard is responsible for Windows freezing...then I would have to ask does your system freeze only when typing the password, trying to login? If so, that would indicate a possible damaged profile, IMO.

The reason I don't want to replace the keyboard is that it's a set w/ a mouse. It's a Logitech Cordless Desktop EX 100. I'll try creating another account and see how it goes.

Update: I created a dummy limited account called Backup. The password was backup. I rebooted into Windows, and it still wouldn't let me type the password, but the mouse no longer freezes.
