When the XP request a pass, it typically shows only the default user account, but you can access to the administrator by pressing [Ctrl]+[Alt]+[Del] two times, generally this account hasn't a pass and you can access to your pc from this.
Open control panel, choose "classic vew" and then open ADMINISTRATIVE TOOLS
In this window go to the LOCAL USERS, select your default account and set the new pass, finally restart the system

In addition to above, if it is the BIOS password which is needed, if the CMOS battery is removed for a few minutes, all the BIOS settings will be restored to default.

Restart the computer into safe mode by tapping F8 on startup. Choose Safe Mode, click Start---->Control Panel----->User Accounts---->Change Account. From here you can create a password. Restart computer and use your new password.
