I cannot log into my computer. I get turn on my PC and am instantly sent to the login page, my cursor is free and works, however, when I click on the password input box and try to enter my password, when I type the dots appear for milliseconds and then disappear, meaning I cannot enter my password.
I cannot perform a system restore as I cannot enter my password.
It is not an issue with my keyboard, as I have used 2 different keyboards and the on-screen keyboard.
It is a custom built PC, if that makes a difference.
I have made no recent software changes other than a Java install.
Any and all help appreciated,
Many thanks,

See if you can login using Safe Mode with Networking. Hold the Shift key and press Restart.




Clear the password and then boot to normal mode.
