Desktop Password Reset

I have a desktop pc that hasn't been used in a few years and I don't remember the password.  I have a recovery password disk however when I boot/reboot the PC and  hit F12, etc. nothing happens.  No matter what I hit during boot up to get to the boot menu, the PC just comes up to the Enter Your Password box.  How can I reset my password?
