  1. do you mean that you forgot your password
  2. Hi Melanie - If you happen to be on a domain, you can contact your system administrator to reset your password.

    If you are not on a domain and you do not have any other accounts, you will need to reinstall Windows 7. To ensure that this doesn't happen in the future you can create a password reset disk http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/Windows7/Create-a-password-reset-disk

    You have three tries before the system halts. If you forget your password, you may have to return your notebook computer to your dealer to reset it.
