If it is coming from Windows as it returns from hibernation or the screen saver has gone on with "require password" to access, enter your normal windows password. If it is coming from the password protection set-up in CMOS you need to clear the CMOS with the jumper on the motherboard (see motherboard or computer manual), or if there is no jumper on the motherboard to "Clear CMOS or sometimes BIOS) then carefully pull the motherboard battery (located in a socket on the top of the motherboard (usually a silver 3202 round battery about the size of a quarter) wait 5 minutes for the CMOS to clear, reinsert the battery and then boot normally. You should not see the login and it should go to Windows boot directly.

this looks like you have kept the bios password and you forgot it. just do one thing open the cpu case to access the inside of the system and then just remove the battery in it. wait for 5 min and again plug in the battery. thats it your bios memory password will be reset. 2nd solution without removing battery. just reset the bios as shorting the jumper pins. consult your motherboard book to know where to find the bios reset. it will be written as CLEAR CMOS.
