You have to press the keys simultaneously; for instance, lets say you want to write oNe, then you go "o", shift+N, "e". When typing passwords, it's always lowercase, even the first letter. If you want to turn CAPSLock on, then go Alt+RightShift. If you want to keep the Alt on; for instance to write a long number, go Alt+LeftShift. To disable any of these, just press any of the shifts key again and it should work. Hope this helps.

I've only managed to enter the password correctly twice. Yesterday I wiped it and had to get IT to set it up again. And today I'm already on shot 4/5.
My question is - what am I doing wrong? What obvious pitfalls are there for a newbie? For example, to get a capital, I've been holding down CAP whilst simultaneously typing the letter - should I be doing that? Or touching them successively? The same goes for the ALT key - in parallel or consecutive keys?
Beyond this, I can't think what the problem might be. Perhaps my fingers are too fat?
It would be great to have your ideas/advice.
