safe mode will open windows with minimal amount of drivers, but will still require a password. Safe mode with command prompt will open in a simulated dos mode, and you can type "explorer" at the command prompt to open the gui and get to the start menu. buty this may not help.
i have sucessfully removed administrator password from windows by taking the hard drive out and installing it in another system as a secondary hard drive. i then manually deleted the "sam" file from windows/system32.
you can also reset the password by reinstalling windows or performing a second, parallel, installaation of windows (identical OS) on the same drive, and then deleting the second installation.

SOURCE: Radio in SAFE mode
Hey.. i just had the same thing happen... bought a 1994 Jetta.. radio in safe mode... so i went online and found out.. hold scan mode and the arrows after your preset station button.. then after like 3 secs or so you'll see " 000" on the display.. use the preset buttons.. 1,2,3, and 4 to change the display to enter your code :D if you lost your code go to VW dealer and pull radio out and see service center .. carry VIN code in as well and they can look up your code.. takes like 5 mins and is FREE,,, man i love that word :D

Hello there Lorna.
This reply is composited from a couple different draft-stage "Tips & Tricks" articles I'm in the middle of developing. Given your (and so many others) dilemma, I don't have the heart to NOT offer this ad-hoc version in the meantime.
To be sure, you are refering to your Windows password(s), correct? If so, essentially you have three potential solution methods:
ADMINISTRATOR VS ADMINISTRATOR
At the outset, it's necessary to understand the distinction of the word "administrator" within this discussion. There is:
If you have Windows XP (and applies to XP only), upon your system's initial installation THE "Administrator" account password was left blank. Normally this just prompts a repeat of my commentary about what a bone-headed policy on Microsoft's part this was (and it was). But not this time, because provided no one has ever subsequently set its password (which is very often the case), you will be the lucky recipient of your own unknown security breach. Therefore, go ahead, try logging on as "Administrator", leaving the password field blank, then OK.
NOT LISTED? Not all users are necessarily displayed at the Windows login "Welcome" screen. The work-around:
METHOD 2: RESET PASSWORDS VIA ANY USER WITH ADMINISTRATIVE PRIVILEGES.
As long as at least one user account with administrator privileges can login to Windows, you already have the ability to reset passwords on any/all remaining accounts.
METHOD 3: RESET PASSWORDS VIA SOFTWARE SOLUTION.
There exist several FREEWARE software tools whose sole function is to access/modify Windows operating system (OS) passwords (aka password resetters). They have in common the REQUIREMENT of being run from a WinPE/BartPE/Live based CD booted environment. In other words, the tool CANNOT be run from within the normally booted Windows OS it's going to work on.
Moreover, just as there are many password resetters to choose from, there are also many FREEWARE choices of these bootable CD's necessary to "host" them. Most are designed for the purpose of performing system recovery tasks (i.e., fixing troubled PC's and salvaging data). In this case I'm going to recommend "Hiren's Boot CD". Hiren's (and many others) include more than one of these password resetters to choose from. However, my preference and recommendation is for one called "Password Renew" (by sala).
NOTE: You having to use this method is truly a blessing in disguise. Your bonus for being prompted by this little password problem of yours, is that you'll be left with an invaluable tool you'll likely be relieved to have many times over in the furture. In fact, you should accomplish the following even if you DON'T NEED to "this time", becuase the BEST time to have a disk such as this, is BEFORE you NEED it.
== CREATE A "HIREN'S BOOT CD" ==
Using imgBurn, burn the extracted disk image "Hiren's.BootCD.#.ISO" to CD/DVD (preferably a CD due to the small file size):
TIP: From now on, by making known to tech-helpers you have this CD available, you potentially bust wide-open a whole range of diagnostic/recovery options they/you wouldn't have otherwise.
== ADVISORY ==
Only you know your level of geek-ability, and the degree to which the following may (or may not) apply to you:
NOTE: I recommend you perform only the one chosen action necessary to regain Windows login with administrator priviledges. Once there, you can complete whatever further needed password related chores using METHOD 1.
Close "Password Renew", then reboot (making sure not to boot up from the CD this time).
Good luck, and please do post back ...
Via-con-Dios and Godspeed -- Geekinator (aka Craig).
