Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
Is there a default user name and password to get pass the windows log on screen i made one by mistake and didnt realize trying to turn the screen off now it wont let me no further than the log in screen
You can try logging in as administrator. As the computer starts up press 'F8' to get into the boot options and select 'Safe Mode with Networking". Click on the administrator login, the password is blank unless you set one during installation. Once in windows you can modify the user accounts in control panel.
Note: If you have never used "F8" to get to the boot menu before the timing is a bit tricky. If you see the windows logo you are too late. Try pressing "F8" several times instead of just holding it down

also you might try
when you boot up to the log in screen type in administrator to log in if you cant log in
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
control panel user accounts
on the users tab,click the name of the computer administrator you can change the password there
hope this helps
