I assume your running Windows XP. If you have an Administrator account, it doesn't have a password by default. If you can log in as that, you can change your other user's password going to Control Panel/User. Select the account and select change password.
If you don't have an admin account, shut down and restart. While the computer is booting, press F8 to enter the Boot menu and boot in safe mode. Select Run from the start menu and type control userpasswords2. Select the account and select reset option. Type a new password into new password and confirm and your done.
All you need to do is for resetting BIOS password you need to take your motherboard`s backup battery off for about 10 mins and then put it back to turn your system on again. If the problem still persist then you need to do the same process for like 20 mins so in this way your password shall be reset.
I get computers donated to me which I rework and give
to folks who can not normally afford one.
Some of these have passwords unknown to me. There is
usually a shorting plug somewhere on the logic board
that lets you clear all passwords. It is usually labeled.
Sometimes you get lucky and there is a diagram inside
the case that shows where everything is.
