    Hi, here again with another problem.

    My Daughters been trying to learn the driving theory test via a CD she bought. I gave her my old laptop to use but some of the keys don't work. The pass code are numbers and one of them is a number to get into it. Anyone any ideas how to bypass this and get the machine to serve its purpose.

    Once again. kind regards Jeff.

    Buy a USB keyboard. Or better still buy a new keyboard for your laptop from Ebay and change it over. It isn't overly difficult to do and there's plenty of Youtube videos.

    As a short-term measure, use the on-screen keyboard, accessed via Control Panel > Ease of Access

    Thank you for the replies.

    I can't get beyond the password, that's the problem. It's a numbered pass code and the first digit is one of the keys that doesn't work.

    If it the Windows password, use this to get rid of it.
