SOURCE: windows vista admin password
I don't think the Guest account has sufficient rights but you can try this:
Go to Start -> Run -> type: cmd and press Enter/Return.
When the CMD prompt shows up, type the following:
net user Administrator ""
this is what you just did: net user Administrator lets you change properties for the user Administrator. The double " changes the password to nothing. You can also type:
net user Administrator <whatever word you like>
Offcourse without the brackets. Mind the spaces between the commands: net<space>user<space>username<space>new password.
If this doesn't work look for Winternals ERD Commander on the Internet. This creates or is a disc with tools. Put it in your drive, reboot (from the disc) and choose the installation you want to manage. Then look up the tool for changing the Administrator password.
Let me know if this was helpful, please rate.

In order for your PC to read your CD on boot, you don't have to enter your BIOS settings. When you start your computer, press the F12 button repeatedly (like F12-F12-F12-F12), and your pc will ask you which boot device you would like to use.
It will show you a screen like this:
Just select your CDROM in the list, and hit enter. this will read your bootable CD.
I hope this helps.

Without CD's, if the Original Windows XP that came with the computer is the one installed, you can completely format and reinstall the Operating System with all the default software that came with the computer suing the System Recovery Option built in to the hard drive on the recovery partition.
Right after you power your computer on, start tapping the F11 button. After the Compaq splash screen disappears, the computer should take you to the System Recovery screen where you can choose to completely Recover your computer back to system defaults. I tried to condense the steps listed on HP's website so they wouldn't be asdf confusing. Here's the link for all the recovery options: http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Document.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&taskId=115&prodSeriesId=1847962&prodTypeId=321957&objectID=c00608578
Go to the section named: Reinstall the operating system using the advanced recovery options
Here's the basic Recovery Steps without disks:
Plug in AC Adapter
Power on your computer
Right after you turn the computer on, repeatedly tap the F11 button
After the Compaq screen disappears, the System Recovery Screen should appear shortly after. Stop tapping F11 when you see this screen
Choose to do a System Recover and click next
Check if next screen has "Advanced Options" to choose from near the top.
If it doesn't, click next, and hopefully the next screen will have "Advanced Options"
Click Advanced Options then choose Destructive Recovery
This will do a FULL FORMAT of the computer and reinstall the Operating System and default software that came with the computer. (Note: this will wipe out all data you have saved on your computer)
Click Next with Destructive Recovery selected.
Reboot the computer when the computer prompts you to reboot
Process may take approx. an hour I believe. DO NOT shut off the computer while the process is running.
Hope this helped, read up about it on HP's website from the link I provided and post back and let us know if this worked for you.

To change the administrator password, you must know the current administrator password. If you're logged in as the administrator, open Account preferences and click the Change Password button.
If you don't remember the password and automatic login is turned off, you can reset the administrator password using the Mac OS X User Install disc.
IMPORTANT: Because a user with the Mac OS X install disc can gain unrestricted access to your computer, you should keep the disc in a safe place.
To reset the administrator password using the Mac OS X disc:
Be sure to change your login password in Keychain Access to match your new password.
