Quick to try but only a vague possibility it will help:

Turn off computer and disconnect from power (for laptops I would also say remove main battery). Hold the Power Off/On button for at least 20 seconds to discharge the motherboard. Reassemble - at odd times it has "unstuck" things.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Is this the windows password or some other? If you give it an additional 30 seconds or so on the initial startup will it then accept the password?
