The following solution has to be performed on another computer
The first step you have to take in this scenario is to go on the internet and download Error Rescue Disk (ERD) Commander image (.ISO or .NRG) from the Microsoft Website called. Since you are using Windows 7 make sure you download ERD for Windows 7.
Secondly you have to write/ burn that image onto a disk using Nero. When you are done, Put the disk in your laptop and restart it. ERD will automatically launch itself into the system. If it does not start, restart the computer while pressing DEL or F2 to go into the BIOS setup. In the BIOS setup, under Boot Order/ Boot sequence, configure the CD-ROM to be the 1st booting device.
Afterwards, when ERD finishes launching, go to start, then Administrative Tools, then "LOCKSMITH), you will be prompted to create a new password that will eventually overwrite the forgotten one. Restart the laptop and use the newly created password to gain access.
Then if you do not want to use a password anymore, go to control panel, User Accounts and disable the password on your Account.
I hope that will get you out of your trouble

OK, if you are running Windows 7, Microsoft tightened
security on it so you've got to have a password reset disk which 99% of the
people who own laptops with windows 7 fail to do. It should be one of the
first things you do when you buy the laptop. Otherwise, you're faced with
reinstalling 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 and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see the Safe Mode option. Select SAFE MODE and let the computer boot up. When it gets to the User Login screen it will show the Administrator userid and the userid for which you forgot the password. Sign in as the Administrator (hopefully you didn't put a password on it and forgot it too). Once the desktop appears 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 forgot the password. Select the option to REMOVE PASSWORD.
Reboot your machine.
