Which Password? Bios Password? Hard Drive Password? Windows Welcome Screen User Logon Password?
Which Operating System? Windows XP? Windows Vista? Windows 7?
I'm going to assume by your request above that it is the Windows Welcome Screen User Logon Password.
OK, if you are running Windows 7, Microsoft tightenedsecurity on it so you've got to have a password reset disk which 99% of thepeople who own laptops with windows 7 fail to do. It should be one of thefirst things you do when you buy the laptop. Otherwise, you're faced withreinstalling the Operating System or possibly doing a System Recovery.
If you're on Windows XP or Vista try this:
Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it back on andimmediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see the Safe Modeoption. Select SAFE MODE and let the computer boot up. When it getsto the User Login screen it will show the Administrator userid and the useridfor which you forgot the password. Sign in as the Administrator (hopefullyyou didn't put a password on it and forgot it too). Once the desktopappears it will look different, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger,but this is normal for safe mode.
Click Start/Control Panel/User Accounts When the User Accounts screen opens, click on the userid for which you forgotthe password. Select the option to REMOVE PASSWORD.
You need to boot from a vista disk. or download the vista recovery disk from microsoft and see if it will repair it. something has corrupt the system files. use the repair from the vista cd not the start up repair from the vista boot screen. if it says it cant find a problem then use the system restore points to restore to a time when it worked. you can acces these from the vista cd after it tries to do start u prepair without having to log into vista.
Try holding down the "F-8" key when the emachines logo appears, see if you get a prompt for "safe mode". If you can get the system up and running in safe mode, shut it back down from the start menu. That should rewrite the boot sector and may clear the problem.

Hope that works, and please rate my response if it was helpful.
