I have a Dell Latitude E5530 with Intel Core i7 / 4gb of RAM running Windows 7 64x.
The laptop is encrypted via TrueCrypt, which I have the pre-boot authorization password for, so that is not the problem. The problem is when I try to log in to any of the local accounts - it states that the user name and passwords are incorrect for the two local administrator accounts, which I know is not the case.
I am also not able to log in to any network account as the laptop lost domain trust relationship. So, you can see my frustration as I am unable to log in locally to remove the laptop from the domain and re-add it so that it is trusted again, and I am also unable to use a password reset disk to clear and reset the local admin passwords because the disk is encrypted with TrueCrypt and I am unable to boot a password reset disk after booting past TrueCrypt.
I think I have tried about everything I can think of (recovery disks, adding another local user in CMD, etc) and i'm pretty much at wits end. I really don't want to start over from scratch on it because the software installed on it took forever to get working and may never work on here again.
I'm not really asking for a way to crack the passwords or anything like that, I'm just trying to figure out if there is a way for me to back into this computer. Any ideas would be greatly and immensely appreciated. Thank you!
