    lost the computer boot-up password. I never changed it from the original one that supplied with it. I bought it from Sams a couple of years ago.

    are you attempting to password protect your computer?

    are you attempting to bypass an already password protected computer?

    If the answer to the second question is yes, then where do you encounter the password? is it on booting up prior to loading into windows (ie is it a BIOS/CMOS password)? or are you trying to bypass the windows password protection?

If TT_MT6's solution does not work for you (ie if your administrator account is password protected) there is a freeware boot CD project that is on-going. Since this is freeware, and i'm in no way associated with the website, i cannot gaurentee the password program on it will work for you, but it's worth a try. just be careful with the provided at the linked site below, as some of the utilities are very powerful and can easily mess up your system if you're "playing" with them.
Click Here for the Ultimate Boot CD for Windows project website.

I hope you find what you need, and please do not forget to rate my solution.

Usually the Administrator account is not password protected.
Press F8 right before Windows Logo shows up and boot to safe mode. Log on as administrator and change your user account's password in Control Panel->"User Accounts"
