Open the control panel and select System and Maintenance.
Scroll to the bottom of the page and select Administrative Tools.
In the new window open Computer Management.
From there open System Tools.
Now open Local Users and Groups.
And finally open Users.
Right click on the account named Administrator and select Properties.
There is a series of tick boxes in the lower half of the properties window deselect the one saying Account Is Disabled.
Apply the changes and Log Off, there should now be 2 accounts in your log in screen, select administrator.
when you go to delete your old account it'll ask you if you want to save the documents and settings from it. say yes and copy the files from the folder into your new admin account.

When you first start the machine, start pressing F8. It should go into safe mode. Safe mode looks different than the regular Windows mode, and there will be a screen with user account boxes, just like when you logged off in Windows. One box will have administrator, another will have whoever had the computer before, and there may be another with guest. Click on the administrator box, then open user accounts from the control panel. Then you can open the user account with the password and clear it. If you still can't get to safe mode let me know and we'll try a forceful way.

There are a lot of Windows password revealers and crackers available, but I’ve found that Windows Password Recovery Tool is the most effective.:
it not only supports XP, 2000, and NT, I have personally tested it with Vista Home Premium and Ultimate. It works perfectly to reset any local user account to a blank password
You can use the ISO to burn a boot CD. Follow these instructions:
1. Download ISO file from http://www.windowspasswordsrecovery.com Windows Password Recovery Tool
2. Burn to a CD using a CD burning tool such as Nero or Roxio or MagicISO
3. Insert CD into drive and reboot.
4. You may have to select an option in the BIOS to get the computer to boot from the CD.
Booting up and clearing a password takes a minute or two works like a charm.

What is the Operating System installed on your Laptop? For windows, try this:
Open the command prompt, or simply start, type in "cmd" [without quotes], press enter and type in "Net user /active:yes" [without quotes and one space after user] again press enter and confirm if any message pops up. This is enable the administrator's account.
You can also manually enable it from the Computer Management, right-click the My Computer, select "Manage", click "Local users and Groups", then again open "Users", double-click the "Administrator" and enable it.
If you need further help, let me know with more details.
Thanks for using FixYa.
