that is because the password in question that you are trying to get past is the BIOS password most likely. Verify that your computer is turned off, remove power cord from back of computer, and find the jumper near the Bios chip on the motherboard. It will usually be close to the battery ( another option, temporarily remove the battery for about 30 seconds, then replace the battery into its proper position ). Be careful when you do this as some battery sockets are a pain to work with. Anyway in nearly all cases, the Bios reset jumper is located very close to both the battery and the bios chip ( firmware ). Removing the Bios reset jumper and positioning it one pin over from the initial position will usually reset the bios and get rid of the bios password requirement. Always put the bios reset jumper back into its initial position before re-appying power to the motherboard. Be careful not to leave anything loose lying around on the motherboard or in the case, else you might fry the motherboard..
Once you have successfully managed to get past the Bios password, then you should see the computer start to boot up normally and prior to Windows boot up and in the Bios routine you can configure the computer to boot to CD first. In many more modern situations, the motherboard is already configured that way.

If you can not enter your operating system because your being asked to type in the password than you will not get into windows unless you re-install windows or have the correct password. If you can not get into your bios because you or someone else set a password up for the bios. You can re-set the bios by clearing the bios settings. This entails moving a jumper on the motherboard to clear the bios & than re-seating the jumper to it's default setting. After doing this you'll have to enter the bios & re-set up all the settings for the system or your operating system may not load correctly.

Ok, what I am going to do is show you how to bypass or (hack) a password protected windows xp computer. first, restart your computer>press F8 before it boots up, a menu will come up>select safe mode>restart in safe mode>the admin account comes up> click on it and click yes when the small menu comes up> the computer should boot to the desktop now>select start>control panel>select user accounts>select change account and follow the prompts to creating a new account (make sure that the administrator radio button is selected) put in your new password, etc> restart your computer. You should now have administrator privileges on that system. Let me know if you have any further problems. :-)

SOURCE: gateway login screen
Restart the laptop, hit F8 repeatadly to start in safe mode. This will bypass XP's login screen. You can then manipulate the password in the control panel. Also, you can change it by going to commandprompt, type: net user * (your username) then whatever password you want.
