Iím not sure if you wanít to boot using fd, cd or scsi so here you have bootable images to all of them.
If you choose the SCSI or CD, which Iím almost certain you will, considering itís a laptop we are talking about you just simply unpack cd050303.zip and burn the iso file as an iso file should be burned (Iím sure you had your fair share of that, ey! Burning ripped iso games and suchÖ).
If you choose to use the floppy you need to copy some drivers from the scsi zip file.
Moving alongÖ When you are done burning the CD, throw it into your laptop and boot with it. When booted you choose which disk you are to violate, and then where on the disk the tools is going to operate (this will most likely be windows/system32/config), which is the default! When thatís done you simply enter the username you want to reset the password for, and then write out the changes. Baam, youíre done! Eject the CD and reboot.
If you have any questions about my explanations you can browse the authors site at http://home.eunet.no...rdahl/ntpasswd/

In the end it was a simple matter of removing ALL batteries (inc BIOS batt) waiting 5 mins, then powering up everything was thus back to defaults and I could then plug the batteries back in
Thanks for the help anyway!!!

Wow, I only read the title and started typing. Im guessing it would have helped if I read the content. Im sorry for that. But at the end of the day you got what you was looking for. Your computer back up and running.
