my passwords have been changed and I can't logon on PC.
Once the WindowXP starts up it asks for the user
password. Is there anyway that I can bypass this screen
and startup the Window XP OS - so I can reset my password?

Only if you have the "local" admin password from the original setup of the
OS..... is this on Home or Pro? try username: "administrator" p/w: "leave
blank (no password) and in the log onto field make sure it is "this computer"
