We have just received a new machine with server 2003 loaded as per our
bespoke software suppliers instructions. the machine was configured with
turkish as the default language, however, the software we installed required
english as the primary language so i changed this in the control panel.
After restarting i found that the administrators password is now invalid and
after three unsuccessful attempts to log in the machine will no longer boot!
Can anyone please offer a technophobe some simple help?

I am ignorant of Turkish but can advise that if you can find the
Unicode equivalent for the problematic characters in your
exisiting password, then you should be able to enter it in the
standard login prompting dialog.
For example if in a password one enters the alt+0174 sequence
then one has used within the password.
