My laptop has completely shut down and all I get is a blue screen.

Everytime I turn on my laptop, I get a blue screen asking for Administrator Password or Power On Password. I can't do anything and I don't have the password. I can't even get into safe mode anymore. If I put in wrong password 3 times it says System Disabled. I want to take my .45 to it right now. I'm beyond frustrated. PLEASE HELP!

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?
