Lost user account and password to laptop
First day back after the holidays and I have done a very stupid thing!
I have a teacher's laptop, which was set to log onto the old domain at our old school site. Over the holidays we moved and are now on a new site with a new domain (but which has the same name as the old domain).
So to take the laptop out of the old domain, I set it to be part of a workgroup instead. Rebooted the laptop just at the moment when I realised I had no idea what the administrator password was. Now I can't log into the laptop at all with any combination of password / user account that we previously had. I've tried booting to a DOS prompt in safe mode, but still get asked to log onto Windows first.
Any thoughts to rescue me from my pit of stupidity?

Oh that looks useful. Will check it out from home tonight and see what I can fix!

Had to get some more CD-RWs to burn this onto but ran it through tonight and have cleared the Administrator password. Now I can get in again fine and sort out my mess. Thanks!
