Is this the local administrator account?

Are you on a domain? Is this a domain controller or member server?

More information needed to help.

Have you checked GPO or local security policy to check minimum password length and if this account has been disabled there?

Auto lock and auto unlock of accounts in GPO would also need to be checked?
