Did you try logging into safe mode? (by hitting F8 while booting)

Or you can try this..
at the log in screen, hit CONTROL+ ALT+ DELETE twice

This will bring up a classic login window, first thing you can try is , try your password from this screen (make sure to watch if your caps lock is on...passwords I believe are case sensitive)...

If that doesn't work, then in the classic window highlight the username and delete it and type:


then for the PW Leave it blank and click ok (if you have assigned the ADMINISTRATOR account a PW, then instead of leaving it blank...type that password).

Last thing I can suggest is doing a "Last known Configuration Settings that Worked" ..this can be done by tapping F8 while booting and selecting "Last known Configuration Settings that Worked"...

Hope that helps

Did you try using the old password again? Maybe the new one didn't stick.
