If you can enter safe mode you already have admin access to the computer. You can open user accounts in control panel and change the password of an existing admin account or create a new one.

If you cannot log in using administrator and a password, it may be because the local administrator password has never been set. If the local administrator does not have a password set it will not allow you to login, even if you try to without any password. Reboot the computer, tapping on the F8 until you get the startup menu. Choose safe mode. If the administrator password has not been set it will not ask you for a password in safe mode! Once in you can open the control panel, then users... and add a password to administrator. Be sure you remember it or create a boot disk key or you may lock yourself out perminently!

Restart the PC. Hold down F8 once you’ve enter the Windows Boot Menu,
select Safe Mode with Networking and once you enter the safe mode,
select (default) Administrator to login with (The password can be blank),
once you succeed to enter Windows using that account, open Control
Panel and open User Accounts and Family Safety and open User Accounts
and then select Manage another account and then select your original PC account
and click Remove Password. Once that is done, restart the PC.
