Apart from the uninstall / reinstall route you could try:

mysqladmin -u root password NEWPASSWORD

from a CMD prompt. You may need to navigate to the relevant directory that stores mysqladmin (typically wampfolder/mysql/bin) and NEWPASSWORD is just place holding text for whatever you want your new password to be.

Alternatively look for a file called CONFIG.PHP - there may be other words between the config and php parts. Open that file up in wordpad or other fav text editor. The password is stored in there as plain text.
