You will have to provide more information. The error message means little without knowing the context.

Information such as:
Is this a remote or local login?
What type of account are you using and does it have permissions for the type of login attempted.

The more information provided the easier it will be to resolve the problem.

Login is local login and I'm using an administrator account.
As far as i know the local safe mode login should always be allowed for Administrative user

If you administrative account is disabled it will not matter what mode you come up in.

Is this a DC, member or standalone server? Is it networked? Can you access it remotely?

do you have another username with admin rights?? that is why it is always advised in managing server to have another separate user with admin rights in case you forget the password or it gets locked out!

If it has Active Directory and you can access it try pushing up a user into a higher level of access. work around activating the admin account or creating a new one

System is not a DC, but this in domain. Also its not that the passowrd of the administrator account is forgotten. The administrator account cannot be accessed. Some times i get messages like 'Net logon service not started hence cannot login'
