Is this a PC or an Apple Mac?

Does the error message come-up as soon as the computer is switched-on? Does it say any more about the error?

The type of error message that comes-up within the first few seconds of switching on the computer is usually caused by a hardware error and the message usually has more information that allows you to narrow the problem down. This may be something as simple as the keyboard being unplugged, or the fan on the CPU nor working, or could be a problem with memory or the motherboard. Either way, more details of the exact wording of the error message and when it occurs would be helpful.

Pete.

Hello,thanks for your reply.I have managed to get as far as password log in.But it will only let me type in 2 letters.The only 2 letters it will accept is the letter G

Hello,thank you for the reply.I have managed to get as far as password login.but it will only allow 2 letters to be typed.And the letter is G.It wont accept any other letter of the password.Been on loads of help forums but can't seem to find an answer.It is a Toshiba Satellite C8500.Just noticed,it will allow more letters,but not most of the password letters....

Okay, it sounds like a problem with the keyboard on your laptop. I'd suggest plugging-in a USB keyboard and see if that works okay.

There's the IT Place at CC Rioja - see map below. Never used them myself, but I've chatted to a couple of the guys who work there and they seem to know their stuff.

Hi, try the dog and bone in La Zenia. I’ve been to them a few times with phones and iPads etc and they have always been really good. They speak English also. Hope this helps, nicola :-)
