Windows XP - administrative login

  1. I recently purchased some older computers at a local auction. The computers were upgraded to Windows XP Professional prior to being sold. I need to know is there any way that I can bypass the administration logon screen so that I can have access to the computer? I attempted to use the ctrl + alt + delete - twice, but it did not work. Since I don't know what the administrative password is, will I have to wipe the hard drive and install a new operating system?
