Try using any possible combinations that you can think of. Also you can try following the steps I am mentioning below. Hope it helps

  1. Try to see if you are watching your CAPSLOCK key. Sometimes its on and you don't notice it.
  2. Since you have Windows XP, so it is a bit easy in it to change or remove the administrator password.
  3. Restart your computer, keep on pressing F8, it will open a new menu which has many options in it.
  4. Select the "Start in Safe Mode". It will take your computer to safe mode. When you come to display screen you will see the Administrator account on top. Log into it
  5. Go to Control Panel and click your user name. You will be able to see a lot of options. Select the"Remove Password" and it will remove the password. 
  6. After that restart your computer and it will not ask you for the password.

You can also try windows password recovery tool 2.0. burn it only a CD and make your computer boot from DVD drive. Then follow the rest of the steps.

Hello, Please follow these steps to reset your password.
  1. Reboot your machine and start the Windows XP in safe mode. Press F8 when the computer starts to enter into safe mode. You have to attempt several times if the right timing is missed.

Hello Dear,
Thanks that you have shared your problem. Dear it becomes very critical to remove administrator password. But you can remove your administrator password by using 3rd party software.
I suggest you to use "Admin Password Remover" software. You can find this software in "Hiren Boot CD". You can download it from this link.
I hope it will fix your problem.
