Hi trevorb1,


You don't say whether you are able to log in to your computer.  If you can, go to:


Start > Control Panel > User Accounts and Familty Safety > User Accounts


Then click on 'Remove your password', enter your current password and click 'Remove Password'

  1. NOTE: There is no "required" password to start up Windows 7, I have never used one.
  2. Click on Start and then Control Panel.
  3. Click on the User Accounts and Family Safety link.

    Note: If you're viewing the Large icons or Small icons view of Control Panel, you won't see this link. Simply click on the User Accounts icon and proceed to Step 4.

  4. Click on the User Accounts link.

  5. In the Make changes to your user account area of the User Accounts window, click the Remove your password link.

  6. In the text box on the next screen, enter your current Windows 7 password.

  7. Click the Remove Password button to confirm that you'd like to remove your Windows 7 password.

  8. You can now close the User Accounts window.

  9. Now that your Windows 7 account password has been deleted, you will no longer need to log on when your computer starts.

    Your computer should now boot all the way to the Windows 7 desktop.
