Did you check whether the Caps Lock and the Keypad key is released? If the keypad key is enabled by using maybe the Fn key and one of the F key, some of your keys on your keyboard will be defined as to enter the little alternative characters on them. When it is enabled, you may be able to see a little light on your keyboard under an icon look like a keypad. Sometimes some keys may get stuck or not working so your password is changed when it is typed in. So you can clear the bottom of the keyboard a little bit by maybe put it up side down and maybe shake it a little bit (when turned off) or press those keys down and feel whether it is touching the bottom. When you press one key down you can observe the keys around and see whether something is stucked beneath them. You can use a little air blower or something like a toothpicker to clear stuff under the keys. If you can connect another keyboard to your laptop, you can try that too.
I heard about some program may change the key code of the keyboard so you actually may need to use other keys to enter that character. I hope that is not the case.
If nothing found with the keyboard, you can try to log in with the administrator's account which was created when you install your Windows 2000 and reset the password of the user account you are using. Steps are described in the following document.

You may also boot with your recovery CD and see whether you can get through the login stuff or reinstall the Operating System. As long as you don't repartition or format your data partition your data should be there still.
