    Ok something very weird happened to me today... I simply wanted to go on my MacBook to listen to some of my music on there, then for some reason, I couldn't login to my account:eek: And I do remember my password very well lol, anyways, after it asked for my master password, and that too wasn't working. It just kept on telling me it was incorrect... Anyways, no one else uses the macbook or anything so i know nobody could have changed it, so what could be the problem?

    Sorry if this is too basic: is your caps lock key on?

    The master password I believe is associated with FileVault. You have to enable FV manually and have to enter in some sort of master password to protect it. Try using a different password that may be in your arsenal.

    Use your macbook restore disk and reset your password. If you have FileVault turned on, you may have to reload OS X.
