Forgot my Administrator password or Power on password

Microsoft Windows 7 (32-bit)
I haven't used my laptop in years , I found it one day and decided to see if it still worked good .
Turned it on and it popped up a black screen with a blue box saying " Enter administrator password or power on password " is there any way to bypass this ?
I made this when I was like 12 , and there is no telling what I set it as .

Hi,

 

At the password screen, hit enter 3 times and you should receive a 'halt code' - post back with this code.

 

Regards,
