When you go to the change password screen via CTRL+ALT+DEL, change the username to DOMAIN\Username and try that

(replace DOMAIN with the actual domain name)

Reset your account using the Active Directory Users and Computers Console.

Then you will be able to log back in.

You can also choose to reset with a temp password or a password.

When a pw has expired, you are able to set it right at the logon prompt. if your virtual machine won't let you do this, please describe what you see after being told it has expired.
You can also reset domain accounts in the active directory users and computers snapin, of course, but any domain admin would know that - you don't have that management console, right?

INSER instead of DEL to do this inside the VM. If it is VMware...
But not sure to fully understand what you want.. As if your password is only expired when you login the system will tell you to change it and that's it..

I am able to login so how can i reset my password if i am domain user.

Using Virtual PC there is an Actions Menu from which you can select Ctrl+Alt+Del

In an RDP session the keystroke is Ctrl+Alt+End
Mr TorturSystem EngineerCommented:
If you are logged on the domain with your account you just have to press ALT+CTLR+DEL (or INS inside a VM, or with actions menu as told by Pony10us) and select change password.
Mr TorturSystem EngineerCommented:
If you cannot log into the domain with this account, and don't have access to AD console, you cannot do it as far as I know.
