Default Login Problem

I have Vista 64 on a laptop I rarely use. When I try to login, it appears to accept my password, goes to the welcome screen, hangs there a bit (maybe a minute), then gives me an incorrect password/login error message. My password hint info listed on screen is correct and I am typing in the correct password. I haven't seen anyone else post this same problem where it actually accepts your password, takes you to the welcome screen, then gives you the password error message.

I do not have a password reset disk.

Make sure that you don't have a sticky key or an issue with the num lock, which some have an issue with. You might want to try this solution regarding the alternative or hidden admin account. There are also third party solutions which may or may not work to recover a password.
