Opt for reinstall

I had this problem before and I had to reinstall XP. Incase you don't have the restore disks; you may google for a linux hack that helps you rewrite your password from the DOS command line.

Don't Reinstall Yet!

You can find a copy of BartPE disks on the internet. They should come with Windows Commander that has a password reset option. You can also find a password reset disk from google. Don't waste your time reinstalling until you have tried both.
