    I have a mac mini with dual hard drives in it, one is a solid state 240 gb, & one is a 500 gb regular drive.

    I was trying to resolve an issue with the contents on the solid state drive, & I did a PRAM reset.

    when the computer came back on, I was logged into the 500 gb hard drive, I want to get back to my other hard drive.

    when I try to log out of my 500 hard drive, I cannot not because I do not know the password for it.

    I want to get back to my 240 solid state drive, it has all my documents & apps.

    both these hard drives have lion installed on them.

    I bought my mac mini like this, & I do not have nay installation discs with the os on them.

    I am the administrator for both hard drives.

    Sorry, if I don't know what I am saying, I can't understand what you typed. I think you need to first unplug your mac. Then turn it on holding the option key and choose the SSD. Once you log into your SSD, go to system preferences>startup disk and click on your SSD. Now it will boot into your SSD. Resetting your PRAM will cause things like this to happen, so don't do it unless you know what you are doing.
