It seems the user you are using to log in is not set as an administrator, and was not given permission to change the password without logging in as administrator.
When windows restarts, instead of entering the password press ctrl+alt+del+del, note that you press del twice while holding down ctrl and alt together. this should bring you to another window were you have to manually enter your username and password, type administrator with no password and press enter, that is if you did not set an administrator password. This should pretty much solve your problem.

Bypassing xp password

Download the Offline NT Password Recovery & Registry Editor tool from this site It is an ISO image that you will need to burn to a CD. This will create a bootable disk that you will use to bypass Windows security (by booting up a copy of linux) and it will allow you to erase the administrator password. Do not try to just change the password since it does not always work properly. Just select the option to blank out the password. When done, make sure you select the option to write the registry to the hard disk otherwise it will not actually change the password.

You'll need to download the floppies or the CD images and use them to create a bootable media.
