Is there anyway I can get past the screen where it prompts me to put in my password to login to my computer?

I have gotten locked out of my computer, and some odd reason my password isn't working, i've tried everything. I know there is a way to by pass that login screen, but I can't remember how.....

  • When the computer is turning it, it will say "F-something" for some menu (sorry, I am low on caffeine). Hit that button, go through the menus, and you will see a spot to remove passwords/users

  • Are you certain that you are entering your password correctly? Beyond that, I don't know how to get past it.

  • I wanna know too!! Good Luck. I would actually like to know how to NOT have to type in a password to log on to your home private computer.

  • The password is being entered correctly, it's my mother's computer that she's trying to log on to, she called some computer person he said sounds like a virus,...yiiiikes!!!!

    @ meooma - click on ur start menu, click on ur picture or name, idk what windows you have, then go from there, on my computer it says ''remove password''
