Windows 7: Cannot Enter Windows 7 Password

Cannot Enter Windows 7 Password

This problem has been happening on and off for a few months now, and only now has it gotten to the point where I can no longer log on. Whenever I click on my username to type in my password, the username disappears and the little bar where I type my password in does not come up. I don't get any errors or anything when this happens.

I went into safe mode to make it so that my user did not require a password, but when I booted my computer up, it tried to log on but said that the password i typed in was invalid. Any help at all on this problem would be greatly appreciated.

Hello Lightwolfii, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You may have entered the password incorrectly in netplwiz by mistake. Boot back into Safe Mode, and set to log on automatically at startup again to be able to enter the password again to see if that may help.

Log On Automatically at Startup

Hope this helps,
