My laptop ran into some problem and started to automatic repair.
But after that it asked for administrator password.
When I am entering it, it's not accepting it.
I tried every thing i can..

Is this Windows 10 ? With an MS Account sign in? If so you can go online to outlook.com and reset the password

So explain further. You were able to successfully change the password and Windows still don't accept it ?

Well, Windows is not running so it is relying on an old copy of the password. How long ago did you change your password? Maybe wait till tomorrow and see if it can fetch the new password from online.

You might even just use the enter key?

You can not change a password without using the old one, how are you changing this password?

Note, the Administrator password will not be the same as any of your Admin user accounts.
If you did not assign a password to the Administrator account when Windows was set up, then it is most likely just the "Enter Key".
