"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years.

Damn. From all I read, that cisco switch when reset to factory settings will have no password set.  Nothing sais about user so I suspect it will be blank as well.  Are you sure you reset it correctly?  
 simultaneously press both the Reset and Clear buttons on the front of the switch.
Continue to press the Clear button while releasing the Reset button.
When the Self Test LED begins to blink, release the Clear button.
The switch will then complete its self test and begin operating with its configuration restored to the factory default settings.
To restore the factory default configuration using the console, execute the erase startup-config command from the console command prompt.

kpmartin,

Do you know how I might be able to reset the switch's password or logon to the switch using a console cable?

I'm hoping not to have to reset the switch to its factory default settings.

I have over 12 of these switches and I don't want them to all lost their settings.

Man, that sounds like a tough deal.  I've never heard of any method to nuke the password without reset to factory defaults.  And you can't login to the console without the user/pw.  Maybe someone else can chime in here....
