That is strange.when did this problem started and have tried restarting the PC after this problem started?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I used the laptop yesterday and it was fine. I switched on this morning and cannot enter my password. I've tried switching off and on several times.
Expert:  John replied 1 year ago.

OK shut down the laptop and remove the power adapter connected and then remove the battery on the bottom of the laptop

Then hold the power button for 30 seconds and then reconnect the power adapter and turn on the laptop and check again.
