retrieving sa login's password is easy if you are using sql server 2005 or above

Please follow the below steps to retrieve or rest you existing password

1) Login to sql server using windows authentication

2) Expand the Sql Server Instance in Sql Server Management Studio

3) Expand "Security"

4) Right click over the "sa" and click Properties

5) In "General" Page, you will have the Password and confirm password textboxes.

6) Give the new password and uncheck the Exisiting Password field and hit ok.

now you can login to sa login with the new password that you have set.
