Answers :

You to need to go unto another computer and get a program called Kon Boot and burn it to disc. Set you computer to boot from cd. Kon Boot will by pass the password screen. Once in you will need to create another user with administrator rights. Once you go back in that account will be the only one that shows up since adminstrator is only displayed when there are no other users.
Try moving the 3 pin jumper on to the last 2 pins for about 3 seconds and put it back its beside your bios battary let me know if it works
