I downloaded veracrypt onto my laptop. My password was working fine the other day. Now it won't accept it. How can I access my computer?

Starting with version 1.14 you can press F5 at the bootloader screen to show/hide the values of the password and PIM if you are not sure if the password and/or PIM characters are being correctly transmitted to the bootloader.

Did you create the VeraCrypt Rescue Disk on this PC?

About 10 x out of 10 you are keying in the wrong password. I can't count the number of times that people (including me) say that it no longer accepts their password, when in reality they are missing a character, adding a character,etc.
