If I understand correctly, Yvonne - your keyboard just beeps when you key in the password? And then you are not passing this point -

It may be the keyboard itself - the beeping may be a stuck key.

Try to boot your system into SafeMode. Turn the system on and as soon as you see the Logo, begin tapping the f8 key. You should be given an option of how to boot your system. Select SafeMode. The next screen is the operating system (Win XP) press enter. The next screen will list all the accounts - plus the Administrator which is the one that you'll want to select. If you didn't add an administrator password during the last installation of Windows, you should just be ablr to press enter and move on to the desktop,

Remember - the Administrator can do anything -

Let me know how you make out, but please note: There's a limit as to what can be done with password workarounds due to privacy and the liability factor.
