My keyboard will not allow my to enter my password in normal or safe mode start.  I can't get to the control panel because I can't . Log on 

A different keyboard also does not respond.  Now my pc is useless and I just upgraded the hard drive. 

Can anyone help?

Success ?

Thank you and that sounds like it would work if I could get to start. I have the windows screen and it says log in. Where start would be is only the option to sleep, shut down, or restart. Even in safe mode I have the same screen. No typing allowed to put in my password to open windows to get to the start button. I was hook g to bypass the password phase and can't find how to do that. It says I have to be logged in as an administrator and I can't log in. This is a mess

Was the 'different keyboard' you used a known good keyboard??....definitely working..??.....try plugging it into a different usb port.....if the keyboard usually plugs into the back of the tower, try using one of the usb ports on the front of the tower (if it has any)

We need to go through the process of elimination again.
