How do I change my password for logging into KIC computers?

Why can’t I log into KIC computers?

PC keyboards have Num Lock and Caps Lock keys. Turning these keys on and off can make typing easier, but can also prevent certain characters from being entered.
Because the ”on” or “off” state of these keys is preserved even after logging off, we have received reports that when the previous user of the computer does not revert these keys to their original state, subsequent users are unwittingly entering an incorrect password despite pressing the correct keys. Such reports are particularly common from PC areas with laptops.

Please refer to the notices posted near the laptops in the Mita KIC which call attention to this issue and how to solve it.

  • If you are using a desktop computer

    • When Num Lock is turned off, you will not be able to enter numbers using the 10-key numeric keypad.
    • When Caps Lock is turned on, all characters entered will be uppercase (the characters produced by typing while the Shift key is held down).
  • If you are using a laptop

    • When Num Lock is turned on, the letters that correspond to the 10-key numeric keypad (u, i, o, j, k, l, m) will produce numbers (0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6).
    • When Caps Lock is turned on, all characters entered will be uppercase (the characters produced by typing while the Shift key is held down).
