You will have to remove it, then put one on. You can get a Password Reset disc download and burn to CD. Copy/paste the address below, into your address bar of your browser.
Download this file and burn it to CD. Put into drive and turn on PC, and boot from the CD. Follow instructions, choose the correct USER. & BLANK the password. make sure you say OK to write the data, and reboot. The logon password will now be reset blank.

Is the password immediate when you start up the machine, or is it the password for windows. If it comes up immediately, then that is a bios password and in most cases is hard if not impossible to remove. If it is a Windows password then simply turn on the machine, wait until the first boot screen goes by then start tapping F8 button. This will bring up a new screen which is the boot options menu. It will list things like Safe Mode, Safe Mode with Networking, etc.... Use your arrow keys on your keyboard to move to Safe Mode with Networking, then hit enter on your keyboard. Hit enter or ok on any prompts then it will bring you to the logon screen. Click on Administrator, and if there is no password on that account, you will login. Then click on Start, then Control Panel, then User Accounts. FInd the user account you want to get into and click on it. On the next screen choose Remove Existing Password and click Ok on any prompts. Once completed you can then restart the computer and click on the user name like normal and it will log you into that profile.

If it's the password for the actual phone you need, just try connecting it to iTunes and try to restore it to factory defaults... If that doesn't work I'd recommend taking it to your carrier and telling them you bought it and it came with a password.

Bought used computer need to change password so i can get in

If the machine has Windows XP you can hack the password with numerous utilities however if it's Vista or greater you will not be able to easily login to change the password and need to re-install the system. If passwords could be recovered easily there would be no point in having them to protect your data.
