Are you sure your keyboard isn't responding? Most password prompts don't echo anything when you enter your password (to prevent shoulder surfing). (Some show a * for each character; this doesn't mean all your keys have been remapped to *.) Isn't your password working?

@Luck: In other words, this is intentional behavior. Just type your password normally in even though you don't see anything on the screen. – ephemient Dec 4 '10 at 1:10
