1. Try No Password Administrator Login Backdoor- In Windows XP there is built in administrator user account that has administrator credentials, enabled by default and without any password to protect the account from been access. If you didn’t change the administrator’s password, then try to sign in to Windows XP without password.
2. Reset password from another user account with administrator credentials.

If you are unable to find your lost password from the above listed methods then you can opt for the windows password reset tools. When I have met such situation, I adopt recommendation of downloading Windows Password Reset Tools online from

Hope this may help you!

Lotuscather's info applies only if it's just Windows you don't know the password for.
You can also re-install Windows from scratch.

If it's a system access password - you must type it to use the computer at all - or a hard drive access password - you may be able get into the bios Setup but you must type it before the operating system will load, then.....

Removing passwords on modern laptops is difficult or impossible, unless you are the original owner and can prove it, or unless you are willing to spend money to have an expert remove the passwords, or you are willing to spend money to replace the mboard, and the hard drive if the hard drive is passworded.

There are illegitimate ways of removing laptop access passwords, but the rules of this web site forbid us from telling you about those.

The first 2 of the 4 things you listed will work for a desktop computer, but not for a modern laptop computer. The password info is NOT stored on the bios chip - it's stored on a separate chip that's soldered into the mboard that cannot have the user data erased from it by removing the power to it.
Backdoor passwords for modern laptops are hard to find if they exist at all.
