    I mean that idk how to log in as a different account.There is no options to log in to the adminstrator account....There is buttons but when I click them,nothing happens! even if I try to shut down.And I don't know how to run system restore when I'm locked out..

    The key is F8 still. Try enabling USB keyboard in the BIOS. You're using USB, right? Try the old-school if USB doesn't work.
