Windows 7 no password recognition

Hi,

Im running Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit. Just 5 minutes ago i wanted to start up my PC. I came at the login windows and choose my user account. I entered the password, its in front of me on paper, but windows did not recognize this password. I tried with my admin account, also no go with its unique password. I restarted the system and then i was able to login. What happenend?

Could be anything from a keyboard that wasnt plugged in correctly to driver that conflict, to a memory problem etc.

If it doesnt happen again dont worry about it

Well, i have a Logitech G110 and it was plugged in correctly. I also saw the dots appearing. No, windows didnt recognise my password. I unplugged the internet connection and changed both passwords. As we speak im scanning my system thorough with a anti virus scanner. I just hate it when such things happen...

I've had this happen to me a couple of times at work as well. Up until I saw this post I was thinking it might be domain related as occasionally we have issues w/ users not hitting a dc at login and getting a temp profile when running win7. I'm going to assume your machine is not on a domain so it might just be windows itself?

... side note on this, in the last year I've had 3 machines(all win7 ent) that had this happen except the reboot(s) didn't work. Every domain and local account locked out. I had to boot to hirens and reset local admin account and password to get in. Then unjoin and rejoin to the domain to get AD logins working again.

Speech Recognition in Windows 7, 64 bit a problem
My language is set for English-US and changing it to English-British still does not start the program properly. How can I fix that? Is there a patch for 64 bit? Naturally Speaking has it now in their version 10.1 for 64 bit. How come MS, so much bigger, can not fix this for us???:mad:
