    Could you please supply the version of the OS that you are using on this laptop? This will likely provide a more specific measure for retrieving the password/resetting it.

Password jam

There is a way by which you can login in into your administrator account..if i.e you have not put a password in your main admin accnt which comes during the OS setup

start the comp in safe mode.
go to control panel users..
you shud se the default admin accnt and your own admin accnt... simply change the password/ delete your admin accnt
now exit safe mode and reboot in normal ... recreate your admin accnt
