You can not get the passcode unless you are an authorized installer of Runco products. Is there any way that you might be able to help me out with this problem?

1st the most easy thing to do if you have nothing important on it then do a complete system restore. by selecting the relevent key f10 f11. OR you could try pressing F8 before wndows starts to boot then from the new menu select recovery option from that menu the follow the on screen options
2nd if it can be done as an option in the restore menu then do a partial restore to a previous point that might remove the password.
3rd use another computer to download a password removal tool this uses the startup boot via a bootable dvd/cd it then uses its built in program to access the Microsoft password system then to either remove or change the password.
However if it is the bios you will need to short the cmos by taking it apart removing the battery or using the jumper to clear it. this WILL void any warranty though.
There is a service reset "button" located on the input panel on the bottom of the projector. This should be what you are looking for you can also download the manual at this link. http://www.runco.com/legacy_prods/legacy_manuals/VX-5000ci-DHD_6-07-04_v2.pdf If you need further assistance please let me know.

Using the remote control for your projector, turn the unit on, then select 'menu' on the remote. On the menu that pops up in the screen, select 'SERVICE', then 'DISPLAY DEVICE', then 'INSTALLATION'... once you select that, scroll over to the "RESET" under the lamp hours... this should reset it.
Here is a link to the owners manual for your unit.
You only want to reset if the projector doesn't turn on because it is a
safety feature so the lamp does not explode. They get really hot and need to be replaced when due. You can buy one from the supplier or online.
There is a reset button on the inside of the
RGB connection bay(look deep) for a reset button, hold it down until the lamp light turns blue.
If flipped over on it's back, you would see it straight down beyond the
connectors. Of course this will reset to factory settings.
