Hi,

Yesterday (April Fools), I thought it would be funny to change my bosses language settings to the Turkish Keyboard.... problem is our computers automatically log us out after 2 minutes of inactivity.
Now... we can't log back on to that computer. None of our passwords work. (If I can get logged on, I can change the keyboard back.)
I tried pulling up a diagram of a turkish keyboard and matching up the letters to my password, but that didn't work either. Help!!!
:confused: Anyone got any ideas???

I was able to resolve the problem by starting the computer in safe mode, it allowed me to log in under administrator without a password and from there I did a system restore.
Thanks again!!!

Thanks for following up. Next time, think it all the way through, and maybe even try it first.

You still have a job? If you do, you should do something nice for that boss.
