This has me stumped. When I try to open up my Inspiron 1721, and put in my password, the key will enter the number/letter twice. Of course I've tried hitting the key lightly but I still get the double entry. Any ideas???

I think the case is of malfunctioning of keyboard's ASCII logic as it is sending the signal of the character or number two time. But, if it is not a problem then you can go to open PC without password. Following are the steps for Windows 7.

1. Press Window Key + R together, this will launch run prompt as seen below. Type “NETPLWIZ” in it without quotes and click OK. This will open a User Accounts Window

2. On the User Account Window as seen below, select the user which you use, and uncheck the option which says “User must enter a use name and password to use this computer”

3. When you click to uncheck this option, it will ask you to confirm the password, enter the password here.

Is your keyboard dirty? Sticky keys can cause this.

Go and get a can of air and try cleaning it out.

Many thanks for the info. I'll clean it first and if that doesn't work, redo the password.
Thanks again
