Without the keyboard working, there would be no point trying to navigate around the password anyways.

homekeys and I have been looking into this problem in chat. The keyboard works in Safe Mode, but isn't loading quick enough to satisfy the password request.

Device has been uninstalled from Device Manager
Prefetch has been purged and keyboard uninstalled again

Still fails to load in Normal Mode.

Try booting into the Safe Mode Administrator account and remove your password. Then reboot and see it the keyboard fully loads.
