can you boot into safe mode (tap f8 at startup ) then login as administrator hopefully no password..
then just go to user accounts in control panel and then remove the password,reboot and then log in......
if not you will need to get hold of some software than boots into a linux disto,,which will then remove the password from the sam...
i believe its called active passwrod changer,,,USE THIS SOFTWARE RESPONSIBLY.
