How to login when you don't know Windows XP admin password

I have a client with a Win XP machine that was previously joined to a domain at work.  Since leaving this job she was apparently logging into the laptop with her domain account and cached credentials.  She now has removed the laptop from the domain and needs to login locally.  However, she does not know the admin password or any other local accounts and passwords.  Are there any options other than reinstalling Windows?  Thank you.
