Password bypass..........

Hi guys,my 11 year old niece has put a password on her dell pc...But now she cant remember what she put has her password.

Could a reformat fix this?

There maybe other ways but a reformat will definitely fix the problem.

IS the password on the BIOS or is it the XP log on password?

  pac73 19:28 05 Jun 2008

XP log on,i think.
