SOURCE: i forgot my password
Try going into safe mode when starting the laptop....to do this press F5 or F8 (can't remember off hand which on )just keep tapping both as the comp. starts up....when the screen pops up select safe mode then your operating system ....you may have to select administrator as the user? then go into the control panel under users and select the user and delete the password off the user....
Hope this helps

Restart your laptop and keep tapping F8 key the moment you see something on the screen. You will get a black screen with some options written in white. Select the option Safe mode and then you can create a new user with admin rights. Or else at the windows login screen press and hold ctrl and alt key and tap delete key twice and then it will take you to a login screen. Dont put any password there just hit enter. And you will be able to login with admin rights.

I think you have to make a windows password reset disk with third part utility. I know a windows password recovery tool named "Windows Login Recovery". Burn a boot CD with the program, and insert it into the problem computer and your password will be reset to “Blank”, without losing any data and you needn't reinstall windows OS. You can download it from http://www.windowsloginrecovery.com
