Find the CDs that came with the laptop when you bought it, and reinstall Windows. Formating means that you completly erased the hard drive so there is no information on it and it is unable to start up. Just reload Windows (or Mac OS) and reinstall the drivers and stuff that came with the laptop, and your good to go.

If you have access to another computer, try finding a program called ERD Commander. This is a disk you will have to burn. After you Burn ERD it will boot into it's own OS. When you get in the OS there will be a program called locksmith - Locksmith will remove/reset any password on any user on the computer.
Ok its kinda tricky but this should work fine but you have to follow these steps...
Turn the laptop on..as soon as you hit the power button start hitting the f8 button repeatedly until the screen comes up with a black backround and white lettering. Use the arrow keys to highlight and select 'Safe Mode' hit enter. When it boots into windows it will give you the option to choose the admistrator as the sign on. Choose the admin and let the computer boot up. (the screen, icons, and lettering will be large) When its up and running choose start then control panel then user accounts. Choose manage other accounts and select the one you want to remove the password from. Then select remove password from one of the options. Once that is done reboot and no more password.
