|did you just aquire this laptop or CD?|
If you are the owner, just leave the password blank and hit enter. That will allow you to get in.
People that don't know their passwords are usually trying to crack a stolen unit and on laptops, that is impossible. It is a security feature.
Don't bother trying any paid programs saying they can retreive or unlock your password, they do not work and you would just be wasting your money.
