User mistakenly changed his login type while trying to configure hie wireless nic on his laptop. He is no longer able to login, the login menu changed and no longer displays a domain, and his password does not work at all (which he did not change). He cannot login even in safe mode. Any help you could provide to him for logging into his laptop short of reformatting the hard drive would be helpful. Thank you. Please respond as soon as possible, as he needs his laptop immediately.

Go to SourceForge and download the ASTRUMI ISO from another PC/laptop. Burn this ISO and boot from it on your damaged laptop. You can then change the password on any user ID. It is easier to just clear the password and after you reboot your laptop, change the password again.
