Locked Out

My ten year old daugther locked herself out of her computer. Her password does not let her open it. She is not on line so I can't call MSN. She uses it for school reports. She has a Dell CPU and uses Windows 2000. I don't know why she installed a password except she entered one when prompted to do so. Is this CPU now useless or do I have to install a new hard drive? Asking around my computers friends has proved fruitless. It has never happened to anyone I know. Can this be remedied? Please advise. Thank you Alibaba

Is this a BIOS password, or a Windows password? Does the computer boot up to Windows to a certain point, and then ask for a password, or does it ask for a password right away when you reboot?

Never tried to recover a Windows password, but I found a tool that might help. Says it should work for Win2000:
