Catalyst 2950 Password Reset

Hey Guys I need some help!!!

I have never used a managed switch till today. I have a switch that we use to use but it was managed by a 3rd party company.

Long story short I have the switch hooked up to Hyper terminal all is set up im able to connect to it. It is asking for a username and password. 

The problem is that i dont know what it is and the company will not give it to me. 

 

How do i reset this password or reset the whole device to bran new!!

I was doing some reading on line and it said to hold in the mode button while plugging in the power. but i did not know what to do after that....

please help!

 

Note: I have attached a few doc that i hope will help you help me :) !
