The password is usually stored in a file of your recovery directory. Try to boot from any kind of Live CD (eg. Ultimate Boot CD, knoppix, Ubuntu, Hirens Boot CD) and navigate through your recoverydrive.
%drive letter%\TOOLS\AIMDRS.DAT

Open the AIMDRS.dat with an editor like notepad and retrieve your password.

Hope this helps
