I've seen this problem a bunch on OEM machines. Administrator password should be blank but doesn't work...
Unfortunately the fix requires a call to MS for the hotfix.

Well its midnight now so what I will do is see the client at 7am at a business meeting so might just call it a day!

For future problems like that, download the UBCD (http://ultimatebootcd.com). This CD has a tool on it with which you canchange or reset an unknown or forgotten password. There also other very usefull tools on this CD which, once you have used the CD, you'll ask yourself how you did without it up to now...
