I have an IBM ThinkPad x220 with docking station.

My system is Windows 7 x64.

When I unlock the computer, I cannot do it from keyboard attached through docking station. It does not recognize the password. I have to put the password from my laptop keyboard and then it works. Is this some issue related to language/keyboard layout assigned to each keyboard?

Or is there any other cause? What can I do to fix it?

Yes, the symbols ** are showing on the screen wen I'm typing on external keyboard.

This question came from our site for system and network administrators.

Do the ••••• symbols appear when you enter the password from the external keyboard? – Daniel Beck Dec 29 '11 at 10:01
Try toggling the Shift lock and/or the Num lock keys. – sawdust Dec 30 '11 at 0:01
