I am attempting to bypass or override my forgotten administrator password in order to reset the same.

If you normally access the Admin account with an email and password, see if you can reset the password via another PC from the Microsoft page on the following link.
Otherwise, there is a general policy on the Forum not to provide methods to bypass Windows log-on passwords, however a local computer shop would be able to do this for you.
Another option, if all your personal data etc is backed-up, would be to reset the notebook to its 'Factory Condition' and then set it up from the beginning – if you don’t have your Recovery Media, the notebook will have shipped with a Recovery Partition which can be accessed at boot - ie shutdown the notebook, then start tapping away at f11 as soon as you power on.
A full guide on this can be found on the following link.
