      this may sound lame but have you tried CAPS?

      Another thing that you can try is to use domain admin to login. That is if your PC is connected to domain server. You can login as domain admin account and then reset the local administrator password once inside.

      If you machine is standalone, then you need to get a password retrieving software. There is actually one that comes as a linux bootup disk. But I forgot the name. Try searching in google.

      The linux boot up disk he was referring too works great. I have used it many times. Often to change the admin password on workstations that the users changed and then forgot.

      Here is the link, has details on making the disk and then running the program. Another thing you can try is using a little utility called NTFS4DOS, creating a boot disk, finding the SAM file, copy it to a floppy disk, and then crack it with l0pht crack, available at

      Here is the link to the linux boot disk, windows password changing tool.

      and here is the link for NTFSDOS
