I had this cpu and monitor a long time ago and can’t quite remember the password to it. Is there a way for me to reset it or some master code to get in? Anything helps.

Most XP era machines can be booted into recovery to reinstall Windows by tapping away at the F10 key immediately after powering on.

If you don't want to do a fresh reinstall you could look into making a bootable cd to remove the password.Ophcrack is fairly simple to use.
