    Ok... my problem is probably two fold...

    I had my laptop on a domain, because I was taking it to work from time to time, I recently quit my job so I was going to change it back over to a workgroup.... well I removed it from the domain and to a work group and restarted as it said I needed to...

    Now I can't log in... no matter what combo I use... admin/pass, admin/blank, username/pass,pass, pass...... nothing works...

    So... I decided I would try one of the many password reset programs or readers.... well none of them that I have tried seem to work... because my laptop has 2 SATA drives in a Data Stripe Raid... so none of the boot disks I have used will load the raid controler...

    I am stuck... I don't know what to do...

    Anyone have any ideas?
    Thanks!
