It's possibly because you are are using your own account password (you may have administrator privileges) but the system wants the (usually hidden) administrator password. If one has never been set then try just pressing 'enter' - ie leave the password blank.

try creating a new admin account, and log into it, see if it works for you.
you could also save as many files as you can to a external hard drive and run a factory restore (usually an F key boot) and restore your machine to factory condition, then restore all your files and settings.
or
take it back to whoever you bought it from, or the person who setup your machine.
