Hello experts

I have a laptop running Windows 7 Pro. There was a bit of something stuck under my '1' key, i ended up typing in my account incorrect until it locked out. As yet, the laptop was just upgraded and has not been connected to a domain.

Windows 7 is asking me for a USB or floppy to unlock. I cannot remember having a usb or floppy during setup to help with unlocking

I cannot find any help on the Microsoft site or on the web in general and desperatley need into this laptop.

any ideas anyone?
