I agree with yashinchalad. Its the most simple and easy way.
After Router start with in 60 sec press Ctrl + Break button one or two time.the router will go to the room Monitor mode from there just type

rommon 1> confreg 0x2142

rommon 2>reset

or

Rommon 2>reload

this will automatically remove password from your router and will set the router to factory default

after router reboot set the password and other desire configuration and chage from the global configuration mood

router > enable
router#config t
router(config)# config-register 0x2102
and save your configuration
router#write


I am 100% sure this will solve your problem
