Windows 7 Starter won't take her password

WindowsStar, my wife's problem is similar, only her Windows 7 Starter won't take her password, so she can't get to the welcome screen. I've pulled the battery off, and also did a restart. Still, the only option is type the friggin' password, and it won't take it.

Windows 7 starter
My son bought a EEEPC 1001 or something like that. It has W7 starter as OS. Is this netbook capable of running any of the higher spec W7 Os's without to much of a problem? Without getting back to him I don't know what the ram situation is. Any hints or advice on that? Thanks
