When you boot up to the log in screen type in administrator to log in once you have your computer running again you have to take control (administrator)control panel user accounts on the users tab,click the name of the computer administrator you can change the password there or if your computer has a system restore you can restore it to an earlier date which will have your personal settings

also you might try

during the boot up process you will see on the screen for a short amount of time press a certain key to enter set up

Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS scroll down to set user password or supervisor password you can change or remove your password from there

also

control panel user accounts

on the users tab,click the name of the computer administrator you can change the password there

Assuming you have already tried leaving the password blank:

Turn the PC off.
Turn the PC on - start tapping F8 repeatedly.
Select safe mode and sign on as Administrator
Go to Control Panel/Users
Remove the password from the affected account.
Reboot.

Password forgotten


Depending on other things that you have set up, you may be able to log in as the "Administrator"
Try the following.
  • On the login screen press CTRL+ALT++Delete
    You should see a login that asks fro your username and password.
  • Enter "Administrator" as the user name.
  • Leave the password blank.
If you have not assigned a password to the system administrator account, this will get you in.
Then you can go to users in the control panel and re-set the password on your other account.
