If you have another admin account on the domain, you can login as that account, then reset the admin password.

Do you have another account handy?

Is this your domain administrator account or just a local user account?

If it is local then this tool works everytime

If you have no way of reseting the sa password than you will have to re-install SQL Server.  Just make sure to save your data files, you may need them.
