locked out of acer travelmate laptop with no disc drive
hi there ,first time on this forum, i was just given an acer travelmate c110 laptop running windows xp tablet , this is an older lappie which you can twist the screen round and turn into a tablet. anyway i did all the usual things i do when i get a 2nd hand machine, i.e. change the name of the computer and wipe the old users and programs etc only this one would not let me wipe the admin users so i changed the admin password to one i could remember and re-started. now instead of a choice of users on log on (like before) i just get a name and the older or the new password doesnt work, i have tried all i know, all i did was change the computer name and the workgroup and the admin password and i am locked out, this computer doesnt have an internal drive and came originally with a external one which i dont have so i cant just use a boot disk and i dont know if i buy an external drive if it will work to boot a computer than it hasnt been set up on. sorry to sound dumb but i have only really used ibooks before and they are so simple compared to windows machines so any help at all with this would be most excellent.
