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.
