    If your using Windows XP you could try to access your laptop in safe mode and logging on as an administrator....Turn on your laptop immediately press F8 then menu screen will pop out chose boot to safe mode. Then chose to log as administrator so you could gain access on your laptop and change your forgotten username and password.
