Hi, my girlfriend has a HP laptop (model number not known) and came back to find her cat sat on it, with the keys unresponsive. The mouse still worked. She restarted the laptop but the keys remained unresponsive (thus unable to enter her password to access the laptop).

1) She's running Vista.
2) No keyboard shortcuts that we've found work (such as bringing up the on-screen keyboard to use with a mouse)

3) By "Unresponsive" I mean that no keys work when pressed either individually or in combinations.

4) We've placed the cat back on the keys and asked it to type in whatever it typed the first time but this also proved ineffective.

Is there a different start-up mode we could use? Any other suggestions would be most gratefully received.
