if it's your login password, just tap f8 on bootup and choose administrator to get into safe mode.
Once in safe mode go into the users and delete the password from your user account. Then you can reset it after you get into your account.

I got into safe mode using F8, then was able to change admin password, then regular password. I then hit save.
the comp. re booted, then when i entered the new password, still wont open.
It also gives me an old password hint (that i dont know).
Any other suggestions? Thanks
