RE: turned on and locked out??
If you locked your computer... your password should be the same as the one
that goes with your username when you log on.

RE: turned on and locked out??
After re-reading your thread here's what you do

Reboot your computer.. Get into safe-mode

Log in as the default 'Administrator' and go to:

Start > Run (if enabled in Start Menu properties, otherwise go to Start >
All Programs > Accesories > Run))

type 'control userpasswords2' (without the quotes)

In the box that pops up click 'Continue'

Select your account (single click only), hit 'Reset Password' and type your
new password, and again to confirm.
