I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Select the default language, then choose "Repair your computer". Then select "Command Prompt". At the command prompt type:

net user administrator /active:yes [enter]
net user administrator password 1234 [enter]

You will need to start the computer either with the installation disk or from the recovery partition.  The recovery option is only momentarily displayed during the first few seconds that you turn on the computer.  It will say something to the effect of Press F10 to start the recovery process.  From there, you can select to repair your computer...Be sure to NOT select the destructive recovery, as this will delete all of your files and make the computer brand new again.
