What you have to do is login, and right click on the my computer icon and select properties. after that click the computer name tab and change the computer to a workgroup. The only problem you will have is that you need ADMINISTRATOR right to get it off the domain. Unless his username and password that he gave you is an administrator, then you should be fine. This will take it off the domain and leave you with a standard login. Just make sure that before you restart it from the change of domain to workgroup, CHANGE THE USERNAME AND PASSWORD! (control panel>Users). Create a new user or change the user that is already there. IF you cant get the administrator password, then the only thing you can do it reformat it.
