Try using a blank password or start in safe mode(usually hit f5 of f8 on start up) and change the password for that user or make a new user in user accounts

When i switch on my lap top a message comes up saying that my password to logon has expired and i cant remember what it is, now i cant do anything with the computer. is there another way around?

Hi Elim, I don't think its a password, sounds like you didn't activate Windows. Windows only gives you 30 days to activate it then you have to call Microsoft and they will give you the activation code.Good Luck.

On the logon screen press the crtl+alt+del twice till it will give you a window that ask for the username and password, erase the username(if there is) and type administrator no password and press enter. You should be able to logon to the administrator account. If your successful you can change the password of your previous account

I forgot my Windows XP (professional) password! I did remember, but what to do if I didn't? I used to know, but had not beenup to date on geekish issues. I know it is hard, buty any suggestions?

Try this it might help

Turn on the computer, as soon as it comes on start pressing the F8 key. Keep pressing the key, eventually you will get to a window that will give you the option of going into windows in safe mode or different other modes, Choose safe mode.

Now when you get to the windows logon just choose the administrator account, go into control panel, user accounts and click on change an account. the one you forgot the password for should be there. if it is, just click on delete password. reboot and windows wont ask for a password for the account.

If that helps let me know. if it doesnt give you the administrator option at windows logon then let me know and i will get you the solution

Can you describe the issue ion more detail?
Do you see a startup screen with the Windows Logo? Does the logon screen come up? Does the computer get out of the BIOS startup?
