In this case, you have few choices. If you reinstall the OS you will wipe out everything on the PC already and start fresh. If you have left yourself a backdoor to get it with a second account that has administrator privileges, you can reset it that way. Finally, there are password recovery programs available. These you'll have to purchase. If there are important and irreplacable files on the hard drive now, it would be a small enough price to pay to get them back. Just Google Password Recovery Software and browse through the offerings.
Sorry there is no quick fix for this. In the future, create 2 admin accounts for just such an occasion.

Forgot my password


Which Password? Bios Password? Hard Drive Password? Windows Welcome Screen User Logon Password?

Which Operating System? Windows XP? Windows Vista? Windows 7?

OK, if you are running Windows 7, Microsoft tightenedsecurity on it so you've got to have a password reset disk which 99% of thepeople who own laptops with windows 7 fail to do. It should be one of thefirst things you do when you buy the laptop. Otherwise, you're faced withreinstalling the Operating System or possibly doing a System Recovery.

If you're on Windows XP or Vista try this:

Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it back on andimmediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see the Safe Modeoption. Select SAFE MODE and let the computer boot up. When it getsto the User Login screen it will show the Administrator userid and the useridfor which you forgot the password. Sign in as the Administrator (hopefullyyou didn't put a password on it and forgot it too). Once the desktopappears it will look different, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger,but this is normal for safe mode.

Click Start/Control Panel/User Accounts
When the User Accounts screen opens, click on the userid for which you forgotthe password. Select the option to REMOVE PASSWORD.

Reboot your machine.
