My daughter's HP laptop (windows XP) was running fine. Battery just ran out, she plugged the computer in and now it will not let her log back on (and she is sure she is typing her password correctly). Any suggestions?

I'm sure it's wrong input (either she is mistaken, or the keyboard is faulty...) I just don't see any other anwser.

Other than booting in safe mode and using the administrator account, that's all I can suggest. We can't help with passwords here.

When the BIOS POST is running before Windows starts, hit F8 a few times, you'll get a prompt that allows you to boot into safe mode.
