Or try this, if you previously has added your database server to the SSMS or EM console with SA account.

MS SQL Server Password Unlocker helps to reset sa password saved in master.mdf of SQL server 2005! I had forgotten the sa password last week, and I fortunately found the MS SQL Server Password Unlocker at a password recovery blog. There are many password recovery solutions including SQL password recovery.
