create a new password file with the orapwd utility, then you will be able to connect as sys with the sysdba role using whatever password you choose.
c:\users\john\home>where orapwd
c:\app\john\product\11.2.0\dbhome_1\BIN\orapwd.exe

c:\users\john\home>orapwd -help
Usage: orapwd file=<fname> entries=<users> force=<y/n> ignorecase=<y/n> nosysdba=<y/n>

  where
    file - name of password file (required),
    password - password for SYS will be prompted if not specified at command line,
    entries - maximum number of distinct DBA (optional),
    force - whether to overwrite existing file (optional),
    ignorecase - passwords are case-insensitive (optional),
    nosysdba - whether to shut out the SYSDBA logon (optional Database Vault only).

  There must be no spaces around the equal-to (=) character.

c:\users\john\home>

If you are on the database server with an OS account that is in the ORA_DBA group then you can always connect "/ as sysdba" (with no use of password file) and change SYSTEM password.

There is noting urgent in a forum but for you to read OraFAQ Forum Guide and not use IM/SMS speak.

The answer is in the first sentence of the link John provided you.
