Win XP Pro an HP OmniBook notebook:

Friend got a used laptop and I was cleaning it up. It had business name, passwords and other stuff she didn't need. I made the mistake of changing the computer name and domain and rebooted. Now I can no longer get into the computer!! Still asks for the previous owners password, which we know and used, but since I changed the computer name the password no longer logs me in. Tried starting in safe mode, but it still doesn't work.... all because I changed the computer name and domain! Is there any way to get around this?? I realize now that I should have eliminated the previous owner's log in name and password first, before I changed the computer and domain name. :thumbsup: Help!

Looks like it's time to use the Recovery CD or partition to restore the laptop back to factory.

What about trying one of those password recovery programs? Does anybody have any experience with any of those? There is one that keeps coming up in my Google searches for an answer to this problem. It's called Emergency Boot CD ..... http://ebcd.pcministry.com/

Has anyone tried it?
Thanks, B.

There are ways to do this - but you'll have to research them by reading the UBCD website.
