What can I do if I forgot my Windows password?

Have a notebook with Windows 7 Pro.

Standart installation, added 2 accounts; admin & "a power user". I'm locked out due to the power-user locking each account.

How can I gain access again ?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

If I remember correctly, booting in Safe Mode will always enable the built-in "Administrator" account and bypass its restrictions. Need to test, though. –  grawity Jun 19 '12 at 8:00
Try the advice grawity gave, if you can't access that account you may be able to retrieve the passwords using something like OPHCrack or reset them with the Offline NT Password Editor tool. –  jmreicha Jun 19 '12 at 19:44
