Try "Administrator" as the password! However you can first knock of the Supervisor's password by typing blanks as the new password(spacebar). Then log in and change the User(you) as the default user and thus gain security access to the PC, then delete the earlier"Administrator" account & remain as the present Administrator. Alternatively you can see from the net. This is a type of slution offered by compaq/hp support for immediate help, which you may try if he above method fails

I have an HP Compaq Presario V2000 and I've been locked out.


You might get in using "Safe Mode" and going throught the Administrator account. If you have no password on that one (most people don't) then all you need to do is hit enter. If you have the same account listed on your Welcome page try it there first. If not Google password recovery. There are some free password recovery programs online that could help. Only other choice is to have your documents backed up by pulling the HDD then do a full recovery using the recovery partition or CD.
