My hp compaq dc5750 doesn't recognize my password. How can I get into my computer?

HP COMPAQ dc5750
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

It says "locked" and doesn't recognize password. 7 yo son may have tried to login several times with wrong paw.

Windows has the capability to "lock-out" all login attempts, for a user-specified length of time, after a user-specified number of incorrect passwords.  Is that the "lock" that you are encountering?

 

Or, some person with physical access to your computer has changed the password.

 

Google-search for "Nordahl offline password".

Use this software to create a bootable CD-R.

Boot your computer from this CD-R, and follow the on-screen instructions to "blank" the password.

Shutdown.

Boot normally.

When prompted for a password, just press ENTER.

When logged-in, set a new password.
