Specs: Windows XP, 540
I have a Lenovo R61e IBM Thinkpad with thinkvantage computer. When my school closed, some teachers were given these to keep. I recently tried to change the password and the domain on the control panel. Now I'm locked out. I've tried everything, but I can't get into my computer. Needless to say, I know almost nothing about computers. Can you help me?

Press Ctrl + Alt + Del to unlock this computer.
OR try this....
1. Use the Shutdown tool in the Microsoft Windows Resource Kit and attempt to shut down the locked computer. The System Shutdown dialog box is displayed on the locked computer, but the computer does not restart.
2. When the shutdown timer expires, the Welcome to Windows dialog box is displayed.
3. Before the screen saver becomes active, press CTRL+ALT+DELETE, and log on normally.

Thank you for your response. I'm afraid it didn't work. I'm going to bring it to someone. This is way beyond me.
Thank you again

It seems that you don't have the admin rights to login to the computer...
I suggest you to consult to some technical assistance...

Good luck...

You'll need to have a local account in order to login since you removed the client from the Domain.

I'd just reload Windows.

Thank you everyone for your help. I ended up taking my laptop to "the guy" to get it fixed. It cost me $30.00. It was well worth it, because this whole thing was beyond me. Now it's fixed and running great, just like new. Thank you again to everyone.

I'm not exactly sure. He put a disc in and typed in some things and Voila! Everything was fine. The whole thing took about 15 minutes. All I know is my computer is working great. Sorry I can't provide more details, but I know so little about computers.
Thank you again.
