I cannot access my windows 7 laptop. The password suddenly does not work anymore is there any thing I can do to fix this?

I read the article, but all the searches I have done, they assume I can get past the password to to any of the things it suggests...When the computer starts, the first thing that comes up is the place that I have to put the password in, I can't get any further.

Is this a Windows Login Password or it is a BIOS password that appears before Windows loads.

If it is the Windows Login Password you can use OPHcrack

Lets try to avoid the use of a crack to get past the pssword screen  Maybe you could try this option instead: http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/102552-built-administrator-enable-winre.html

 

Once you are able to get in, you can change your password for your account back to normal.

 

did you need more detailed instructions on how that can be accomplished?

Thank you all for your input.  I tried everything but nothing I did would work.  Finally my husband did some research and ended up taking the computer apart and followed the instructions he found and it worked. It really was the same thing as taking the cmos battery out and putting it back in to reset things, but this particular computer didn't have that so he did something else.  Now everything is ok..
