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.
