Not Accepting my Password

When I tried to log on to my 2-year-old HP2009M this morning, it wouldn't accept my password. I've rebooted, but to no avail. How do I solve this problem?

Caps lock?

Does anyone else know the password and might have changed it?

Checked the caps lock. Nope.
I'll check on the possibility of hubby changing the password, but that's highly doubtful.

Mmmm.....wonder what else could be causing this?
