To log in with another user account, reboot the laptop and then before Windows is loading press F8 until the Service Menu appears. Choose Safe Mode and boot to Windows. You will see that in the user list, the Administrator account will be displayed. Select it and then load the desktop. Go to Control panel > Users and change the password for the account you forgot.

Reboot the PC and then log in with your normal user and password and that's it.
