a- Restart the computer.
b- At the sign in screen Press CTRL+ALT+DELETE two times, and then type the name of the administrator user account.
c- In the Password box, type the administrator password, and then click OK.
Note If the administrator password is set to a blank password, do not type a password before you click OK.
2- Reset the password.

b- Type control userpasswords2, and then click OK.
c- On the Users tab, click the name of the user account that you want to reset the password for, and then click Reset Password.

e- Restart the computer, and then try to log on to Windows XP again.
Hope this helps
Please note that when you say you created a password for the administrator account this method might not work for you but if you created a password for your name who is also an administrator account then when at the sign in screen it will appear an administrator account after you press twice CTRL+ALT+DELETE, if none other appear then this method will not help you.
