Administrator Password

I guess, every one is going to laugh. Sorry, no choice.

I have travelled overseas for 3 weeks and now I forgot the administrator password on Windows Server 2008.  I think, the brain is still in jetlag mode or temporary brain dead.  

I am not sure if the administrator password expired.  If expired, I am guessing the system would prompt to change the password.

I do have a personal account with administrator rights.  I am able to access that account on Windows 2008 Server.  I have searched on google and tried to change 'Administrator password' with NO RESULTS.  

Is there any way to change the Administrator password by logging as an individual (who has administrator rights) ?  Any help would be appreciated.
