Hello,
\015\012
\015\012It sounds like you might have accidentally turned on the laptop number lock. I am assuming you are seeing that characters are being typed, but the password is not accepted. If this is the case, try turning off the num lock by pressing the FN key (usually found by on the lower left by the CTRL and/or ALT keys).
\015\012
\015\012If this doesn't work, trying entering the BIOS when starting the computer (usually by pressing F2 repeatedly when you see the DELL logo). In the BIOS look for an option for the numlock and turn it off.
\015\012
\015\012Last shot - I have seen a few times where num lock is remembered when an external keyboard is used and then stays enabled on the laptop after it is disconnected. If you used a plugged in keyboard and/or use a docking station, you may want to try plugging in the keyboard again, disable NumLock (above the number pad on the right) and then shut down. Remove the external keyboard and I suspect the laptop won't have this issue.

My computer got a virus and I couldn't get rid of it so I ran disk check. It came up with about 600 corrupted files which it then deleted or tried to fix.

I don't have my recovery disks because I am in the middle of a move and they're packed and the instructions for using F8 to access recovery partition don't do anything.
