windows 7 starts to ctrl+Alt+del instead of welcome screen RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have an old thinkpad laptop

    the welcome screen says to press ctr+alt+del to logon

    Its wanting to logon to a domain

    forgot the password how can I log on to it locally without formatting it.

    It says to login locally to type NAME-THINKPAD\local user name

    the username login is Joe

    so I type

    NAME-THINKPAD\Joe

    and I type what I think is the password but it doesn't work

    Any ideas, thanks

    Have you changed your computer name before?

     

    If you're not sure the password is correct or not, type Administrator and try again.
