Please try one of those solutions : First Can you make sure the CAPS lock and NUM lock keys are off, then try the password *****'ve been using

Solution 1 : Using the Administrator Account

1- Start or restart your computer and press "F8" while the computer boots up. The Advanced Boot Options screen appears.

2- Scroll down to "Safe Mode" with the arrow keys on the keyboard and press "Enter." Your computer starts in Safe Mode.

3-Click on the "Administrator" account that appears on the Windows logon screen

4-Click on "Start" and "Control Panel".

6-Then click"Manage Another account" as following.

7-Choose the account which you want to reset the password.

8-Click "Change the password" as following

9-Type a new password ***** that account.

If you don't see the Administrator account then you will need to creat one :

restart your computer and press "F8" Scroll down to "Safe Mode with command prompt", a black box will appear, please type :

net user Administrator /active:yes (and click enter)

now restart your computer and follow the previous steps.

Solution 2 : Bypass Windows 7 password

1-Insert your windows 7 disc and restart your computer, and Boot off the Windows disk and select the “Repair your computer” option from the lower left-hand corner.

2-Follow through until you get to the option to open the Command Prompt, which you’ll want to select.

3-type in the following command :

copy c:\windows\system32\sethc.exe c:\ (click enter)

copy c:\windows\system32\cmd.exe c:\windows\system32\sethc.exe (click enter)

4-Now reboot the computer.

5-Once you get to the login screen, hit the Shift key 5 times, and you’ll see an administrator mode command prompt.

6-type the following command : net user LOGIN_USERNAME YOUR_NEW_PASSWORD

example : net user jack acer2015

7-Now you can login with your new password

If you don't have the windows 7 disk please watch this short video on YouTube : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qWLZPsyp0Gc
