try to log in with blank password, if it didn't work, so you have to use third pary tools to reset the password

Free Windows password-cracking tools are usually Linux boot disks that have NT file system (NTFS) drivers and software that will read the registry and rewrite the password hashes for any account including the Administrators. This process requires physical access to the console and an available floppy drive but it works like a charm! I've done it myself several times with no glitch or problem whatsoever.
Here are 5 of these free tools:

-Windows Password recovery - Can retrieve forgotten admin and users' passwords in minutes. Safest possible option, does not write anything to hard drive

-Petter Nordahl-Hagen's Offline NT Password & Registry Editor - A great boot CD/Floppy that can reset the local administrator's password.

-Openwall's John the Ripper - Good boot floppy with cracking capabilities.

-EBCD – Emergency Boot CD - Bootable CD, intended for system recovery in the case of software or hardware faults.
