Tips for a great answer:
Reboot the computer into Safe Mode
During the boot process tap the f8 button three times this will boot into safe mode where the only things working will be your mouse and keyboard enabling you to attempt to repair your computer Advanced Boot Options screen appears.
Select the Safe Mode option using the up and down arrow keys, then press the ENTER key. Choose "Windows XP Home/Professional", depending on the version of the operating system.
Press ENTER. Shortly, the welcome screen should show.
Log in as "Administrator".
Click Yes to not use System Restore Mode.
Click the Start button. Choose Run and type in "control user passwords" (without the quotes). Click OK.
Select the "Administrator" user. Click Change my password. Enter a new password in the corresponding text boxes. Click OK. Write this password down and store it in a secure place Close the User Accounts window and restart Windows.
In User Accounts select the account you wish to change the password for, click change password and then enter the new password or click remove the password to remove the password from the account.
If all else fails you may have to clear the BIOS password by resetting the RTC (Real Time Clock) IC (Integrated Circuit) on your motherboard
Many RTC's require an external battery. If your RTC is one of this type you can clear the BIOS password just by unsocketing the RTC and reseating it
Hope it helps
