Turn the computer off. Turn it back on and start tapping F8 when you get the 'advanced boot options' choose safe mode and use the administrator account to change the password from there.

It would have been easier if the Windows Operating System was mentioned, but still considering if you have Windows 8 or Windows 10 installed, Please follow the instructions mentioned on the link given below:
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-live/account-reset-password-forgot-faq

If you have forgotten your Windows 7 password and you are on a domain, you need to contact your system administrator to reset your password. If you are not on a domain, you can reset your Windows password by using a password reset disk or by using an administrator account.
To create a password reset disk, follow the steps mentioned in the Microsoft support page below:
(Note: Before starting with the steps in the following link, make sure that you have selected "Windows 7" in the drop-down menu at the start of the page).
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-in/windows/create-password-reset-disk#1TC=windows-7

To reset your Windows password by using an administrator account, follow the steps mentioned in the Microsoft support page below:
(Note: Before starting with the steps in the following link, make sure that you have selected "Windows 7" in the drop-down menu at the start of the page).
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-in/windows/reset-windows-password#1TC=windows-7

(Important: If you forget the administrator password and don't have a password reset disk or another administrator account, you won't be able to reset the password. If there are no other user accounts on the computer, you won't be able to log on to Windows and will need to re-install Windows.)
To know more about resetting Windows 7 password, refer to the following Microsoft support page:

Lost password cant get in is there some way of reseting the comp?


Actually there is.....

  1. Reset your computer and continuously press f8. This will bring to a list of choices then choose safe mode.
  2. Safe mode will show you a couple of log in ID's if you have your own log in ID in your PC. It will show an ID named Administrator enter this account.
  3. Go to control panel then choose user accounts.
  4. Create your won ID and make it admin or delete a password from other accounts.
This is the first guide, in some computer the second guide can be done.

  1. Open your CPU tower case and locate a round shape battery.
  2. Remember to do this with your computer shut down.
  3. Remove the battery and turn your computer on.
  4. Shut it down again then reinstall the battery.
  5. When you turn your PC on it will automaticlly disable all passwords.
3rd guide

  1. Follow the step 1 in guide 2.
  2. Near the Battery is a 3 pin with a binding blue clip binding the two pins and leaving one pin.
  3. Remove the pin and bind the other two. Like this......123 <--pins, 1 and 2 is bind then remove the clip and bind 2 and 3.
  4. Turn your computer on and the passwords will be gone.
  5. Remember that the pins near the battery has a color blue clip.
