Look around the Internet for a blank administrator password CD. You can find various ones to download (like UBCD) and then create a bootable CD. Once that is done, simply boot, using the CD, and follow the prompts to blank the administrator password. Log in using the admin account and create a good, strong (but memorable) password.
I hope this helps. If it does, please rate the solution.

This will reset your system's CMOS back to its Factory default settings.
(If you can't unscrew your PC yourself, you can just get a good technician to do it for you
Hope it helps.
