Hello I would really like some help with this. Basically 2 nights ago I changed my permissions to require login on wake up. It has been working fine the past 2 days. Today I wake up And go to wake up my macbookpro and it is taking really long. The screen and keyboard brightness buttons aren't working and the volume buttons aren't either. Finally my brightness increases by 1 so I can at least see the screen. I try to login but it won't let me. It shakes which I think means my password is wrong. My password hasn't changed. I know my password.

Anyway. I call a friend and he walks me through bootin into cmnd +s and I do an admin account reset. Everythin is typing fine.in English letters. It then reboots and I go through the leopard welcome screen and registration screens but don't feel like inputting my info so I skip them. I set my region to USA and my lanuage to English. When it is time to enter my admin acct name and shirt name and everything it starts typing in weird symbols like @£# and the trademark and registered symbols. I am guessing this is why it said my password was wrong because I was typng in weird symbols and just didn't know it. It was typing almost like if I was dong alt codes or something.

Does anyone else have a solution for this? I bought my comp at best buy with their warranty so I have to bring it to get checked out if I can't solve it here because it is over a year old for apple care.

Any help is appreciated. Let me know if you need more info. My computer is currently switched off and I am typing this with my iPhone.


Can anyone help with this situation
