Thanks in advance for any help. I installed XP w/SP2 on my girlfriend's laptop yesterday, everything went fine, used an unattended CD with the help of nLite. I then created another account under her name, and then disabled the Administrator account, as I usually do. However, I messed up in the process and didn't realize that the new account would automatically be in the Users group and not the Administrators group. Thus, she can't install anything, and can't log in to the Administrator account. Is there any way to fix this, short of a password recovery CD (which I'm not even positive will work)? The monkey wrench thrown all into the mix is that her laptop's display is messed up, and thus she has an external monitor and keyboard/mouse. However, the external monitor doesn't receive a signal till Windows has booted. The screen flickers during bootup/BIOS/DOS stuff/etc., and isn't 100% reliable. That's why I'm trying to see if I don't have to use a password recovery disk, as she won't be able to see anything on her monitor. Thanks again.
