Although you can reset some jumpers and do it the advanced way, what works in my house is just starting the computer in Safe Mode, and login using the Administrator account (no password) and then just go into user management and change it. Do you know how to enter Safe Mode to try this?

My account is the administrator account, it's the only account on the computer, that's the problem and the only way to get in is by inputting my password

there are ways but there are no ways of telling if this is your computer becuase you may have stolen the computer and just cant get past the password so reinstall the os from the disc given and then you will be fine except your computer will have all the factory settings and programs
