I forgot my password my omnibookxe3on windows for

If you forgot your password and the answer to your security question then no, you won't be able to login with that account.
There are free tools on the internet that you can use to reset your password with. Search for linux based windows password recovery tool and you'll get a long list of them.
Depending on the version of windows there is a boot option that at the windows loading screen you can press F8 to login as the system administrator which you can reset the password for your user account from there.

If you are talking about the login to Windows password then here is one way to do it:
Create a bootable USB stick using this tool:

Use the image from Ophcrack to load onto the USB: Choose the XP LIVE CD Option
1. Download the YUMI exe to your desktop 2.. Save the LIVE CD of Ophcrack to your desktop. 3. Plug in the usb stick you want to use (make sure it is at least 500MB. 1GB if possible) 4. Run the YUMI EXE and follow the instructions. Make sure to choose the USB Drive Letter ("D:" E:" etc) 5. Choose the Ophcrack ISO for the image. 6. Install to USB 7. Click Finished and exit the program and close any other open programs. 8. Restart the computer. Leave USB plugged in. 9. As soon as the computer restarts, tap the F10 button to enter the BIOS Menu. 10. Scroll to the Boot / Advanced Menu and change the boot order to USB first, HDD second. 11. Save and exit BIOS. Computer will restart. 12. Once booted up the computer will bypass the HDD and boot into the USB 13. elect Ophcrack from the list and hit Enter. 14.

It says "GDM could not write to your authorization file. This mean that you are out of disk space or that your home directory could not be opened for writing. In any case, it is not possible to log in....

I assume this is linux? if your home directory can not be found you may need to format that particular partition with gparted, if you want to try something prior you can try and use kanotics or mepis live cd and try and transfer the data to a different device or back it up online.
