Unhappy Windows XP

Hi all
I installed Windows XP on my PC ( Previously I had Mellinium) & the system does not recognise my old login password. Unable to login & use my computer.
How do I deal with this ??
Thanks

Press F8 to go to safe mode, log in with Administrator account and change the log in password.

Next time, do an overhaul installation with XP. An upgrade is usually not advisable for MS's products.
