SOURCE: Password forgotten
Unfortunately, there are only 2 ways around this. Reinstallation of te OS will wipe out everything but allow a new account to be created. If this is the case, create 2 accounts both with admin priveleges for future scenarios. Restore her important files from her backups ( she did backup on a regular basis, didn't she?).
If there are no backups and she doesn't want to lose what's on there, Google "password recovery software" and choose from the multitude of hits that are returned. I can't recommend any of them as I have never had to use them before.
Thanks for using Fixya.com. Keep us in mind for future needs and please rate this tip accordingly.

SOURCE: Forgotten User Password
Try to get your hands on a windows installation disc, or even the recovery disc that came with the computer. If you get the windows installation disc, you can reinstall windows onto it. That is basically what you can do.

OK, I'm assuming this is a power up password or BIOS password that has been forgotten. The only way to clear this password is by "shorting" a jumper connection on the motherboard. There is a special jumper on the motherboard where the Memory modules are. Flip the laptop over so the bottom of the case is up. There is an access door that covers the memory, take this door off and take the memory modules out. Look on the motherboard, there will be a small square marked J3 and it will have metal contacts on it. To "short" the connection, use a screwdriver or similar tool that will contact all the contacts in the jumper area. While holding this in place, power up the laptop and wait for it to go into the boot sequence. Once it boots or after 45 seconds, remove power and remove the "short". put memory back in and reboot. When you do this procedure, make sure the main battery is out. Once you reboot, it may still ask for the password, just hit enter and it should let you in.
