If you are talking about changing the password for an account that is using SQL authentication, then you would need to open the SQL Server Mgmt. Studio program with a SQL administrator-level user and password. Then go to Security/Logins and find the user whose password you want to change. Right-click the user name, go to Properties and change the password on the General properties page.
If that's not what you're looking for, please provide further details on your exact situation and what you're trying to accomplish.
