Make sure your Number Lock or Caps Lock is not turned on when you are typing your password. Computers do not read wrong passwords, so either you are mistyping it or someone has changed the password without telling you.

Maybe you mean log on password. If you never enter a password to log on, but suddenly when turning on the computer, you are prompted to enter a password to log on, but always failed. You try to log in using an administrator user but failed. Chances are, the operating system is infected with viruses.
So, the operating system has controlled the virus.

solution:
Install the new operating system (not repair the operating system)

Cannot log in my computer it keeps saying the wrong password or user name and it won't allow me to reset my password. I am using the right password. It is the first time since i set up my computer and now...


You can try pressing the F8 key a bit before windows boots to enter safe-mode, which should allow you to enter the administrator user. You should then go to the "control panel/users" section and change/reset the password for your user account. I hope it helps you solve your problem! If not, there are more advanced solutions possible!
Good luck!
