If you are trying to reset a Windows 7 password, download the freeware ISO file from here:

Petter Nordahl-Hagen's Offline NT Password & Registry Editor
http://pogostick.net/~pnh/ntpasswd/

After you have burned that ISO to disc, boot up into the Linux environment and reset your password.  I have been using this utility to help people with their forgotten Windows passwords for over ten years, and unless the hard drive has actually been encrypted it has worked every time! Here is a comprehensive tutorial on how to utilize it:

http://pcsupport.about.com/od/toolsofthetrade/ss/ontpre-screenshot-guide-p2.htm

There are two important steps within that tutorial that warrant extra attention:

- When you reach the User Edit Menu stage of the process it's best to select "1" to Clear (blank) user password.  You can always change the password to something more secure after you successfully log into Windows with the blank password.

- When you reach Step FOUR: Writing back changes, you will be queried with About to write file(s) back! Do it? [n].  If you inadvertently pressed Enter on this screen the changes won’t go into effect.  You need to specifically type "y" first for the updates to be written to the operating system.

If you don't know that password, you would need to use the method that I described above to reset it to a blank password.  Once that is done, if you wish you can use the following method to remove the password completely:

My apologies for the misunderstanding.

Have your tried simply entering the word "password" already?  I know that's the default factory setting on some of the machines that I work with.

Other than that, I would try contacting your hardware vendor and explaining the situation.  I'm guess that you definitely aren't the first person who has encountered this particular scenario, and I'm sure that they can help.
