    This has been happening to me sometimes over the past couple weeks. In the past something always worked eventually (pressing SHIFT enough times, or maybe only once... or something), but today nothing was doing the trick. Searching with my phone, I just found a solution on another forum that worked for me:
    • Shut down computer using power button
    • Press & hold SHIFT and ENTER keys together
    • Turn on computer while holding SHIFT and ENTER keys down.

    When the login screen appeared, I was able to enter my password.Hope this helps somebody :)
    This probably starts Windows in Safe Mode so you can login.

    Make sure the numlock key is lit. Windows 10 has a habbit of disabling that on boot.

    An alternative login method is available if you have a working mouse - click the Accessibility icon at the bottom right of the login screen and activate the on-screen keyboard. I did this after getting stuck and it worked. When i logged in, after a few minutes updates applied for my keyboard (razer synapse) and everything started working again.

    Though if your keyboard doesn't start again from here, if you managed to log in you can now likely check drivers manually, which I'd recommend - Google it or search these forums for advice.
