[MODERATOR EDIT - REMOVAL OF HACKING CD]

If not then use  http://pogostick.net/~pnh/ntpasswd/

This is slightly more involved but aloows you to basically "black" any existing passwords for any user on the machine.

Should be a guide on the site.

Blanking the password option has always worked for me in the past using that software

what laptop are we talking about?  
and is it the bios password?  on modern laptops - that cannot be broken; on older  ones you may have luck
