It is against this forums policy to provide help for password problems except in exceptional circumstances because we have no idea whether you are the rightful owner. Your next step is to contact the distributor and be prepared to provide proof of ownership.

Your specs say Win 7, this is the Win 8 forum!

Obtain Windows CD (XP, Vista, 7, 8, doesn't matter process is largely the same)
Here is a sample using a Vista CD.

1: Set the bios to boot from CD first.
2: Boot off Windows CD into setup.
3: At setup hold shift key and press F10.
4: This will bring up a command window.
5: In the command window type "control userpasswords2" without quotes & hit Enter.
6: Highlight admin account and reset and set a new password.

When you were doing your homework you presumably knew the password in order to use the computer. Next time you used the computer you had forgotten the password. I don't understand this, as it is homework you are obviously a young person. I am approaching my 80's yet even my memory would manage to remember that.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

I've had weekends like that too and can say your memory should eventually come back.
