The neighbor boy and my son were playing a computer game on an older Dell
unit that is running windows 98. They got done playing for the moment and clicked the save button. After it saved, the computer beepd a few times and then shut off by itself. Now when computer is turned on and password is enterd it will not accept the password, asks , if you have forgotten password. Computer has no internet access.
They have asked me to look at it, but I thought I would ask someone more knowledgable (you) what you thought about this.
Any help appreciated.

Fire up the machine and search drive C: for any files that end in .pwl

Delete them. Problem fixed.

To search for them enter in the search files and folders window *.pwl

Make sure that you also tell it to search hidden and system files.
