I use pwdump with the password history patch to to obtain the hashes of passwords in history.

Cached logon credentials could be stored in HKLM\Security\Cache unless it has been diasbled. 

Password history hashes can be found in files located in SystemRoot%\system32\config

Proactive System Password Recovey tool has worked for me also: http://www.securityfocus.com/tools/category/10
