I am unable to login to windows.

My keyboard wont type anything other than control, shift, space, i and p.

I jave tried to boot in safe mode, I have also tried to ise the on acreen keyboard but the same problem occurs.

I would like to avoid a full reinstall as I have files that are not in recoverable areas.

Thanks

Are you using a wired or wireless keyboard? Have you tried a different keyboard?

Try the on-screen keyboard with Usb keyboard(s) disconnected, does it work then ?

Are you using a mouse, a touchpad (on a laptop) or a touchscreen with the on-screen keyboard ?
