admin account disabled by system admin, only there is no system admin!
Hello

I am running Windows Vista Basic on a lenovo laptop. This is my first windows based computer and I was playing around with the user accounts. Well, I think I messed something up real bad, because only my daughter's user account is enabled. My Admin account has been disabled and I'm asked to see the system administrator. There is no system administrator. How do I access the system admin account to enable my admin account? I have tried the .cmd screen "run as admin", but the option to run as admin doesn't show up. I've tried to enable the hidden admin account, but I do not have sufficient privilages. Also, I'm not able to start up in safe mode. I get redirected to something called BIOS. I am unable to install or update any programs, because access is denied by the system admin.

Somebody help?

thanks
SR
ps. I bought this laptop used
