Default Getting into windows xp administrator account???

My dad is the only administrator on our home computer and no one knows his password. He used to log on and install anything i needed for me but my mum and dad have split up and i have lost contact with him. Can someone plz tell me how to find out his password or change it?

Plz use simple language and step by step instructions

There is no way to do this - reinstall Windows.

Lol; well we didn't know that.

But hence my first idea has to stand. Or get a new Hard Drive, install Windows on there and afterwards set up your old hard drive as secondary and transfer what you had to the new one.

In the process you get a nice new hard drive.

no offence man, and I appologies if you were telling the truth but.
First your parents are split up,
then you say it's hard to contact your dad.
then you say he's dead...
If you want someone to hold your hand and teach you to hack, just say.
