Do u even log-in to this machine? Did they not send u the CD for the installed OS? Did u phone them to find out the password?

Give feedback on OS type and whether or not u r able to log-in

Try this link:

http://home.eunet.no/~pnordahl/ntpasswd/

You can download this utility and create a booting CD-Rom with it. Then, when you boot your thinkpad with it you can change the administrator password.

Use Winternals Admin pack software and reset the password to anything you want it to be.
