No caps lock is off & I just tried the battery reset ....no luck,looks like I will have to re-install and then make a password reset disk just in case before I let it go to sleep. one more quick question .If I use a USB stick as a password reset disk can that usb stick have other information on it......thanks for all the ideas

I figured as much, thought I would ask anyways.

If you make a recovery disk, use a dedicated CD for it, not a USB drive.

You can have other information on it but only one Password reset file in the root directory.
