    I am currently running XP and my keyboard has become corrupt. Needless to say, this is a problem as I am the administrator and I cannot log on. Is there a way around the password protection or do I have to format and start all over?

    Um, get a new keyboard. Or is there more to what you are saying?

    The keyboard drivers are corrupt. I have tried changing the keyboard, but XP is not picking up the change. I need to fix the current drivers, but I cannot log on as the admin without typing in my password.
