windows password locked

Specs: Windows XP
Windows XP password has been set somehow without me doing anything so I can't login. I've scearched through loads of differt answers and tried 3 different cracker programs (Ophcrack, PClogin and Windows password recovery) but nothing works.
Ophcrack says there's an error reading the SAM file, PClogin says it's reset it but the problem continues and Win Pass rec. says there isn't any password set!

Tried login under safe mode but still doesn't get past the password prompt. Tried Administrator without password no luck.....

if it's a bios password, just remove the bios battery (size of a nickel) from the motherboard for 15 seconds and replace it and then boot up.

Some HELP in posting on plus free progs and instructions Cheers

Having tried a few more times with different cracker programs it is now asking for a password but no user name is coming up so there isn't even anywhere to type in a password.
How can one login so that you come direct to DOS and not windows?
