Windows 7: Leave Windows 7 Homegroup, Cannot leave homegroup from broken computer

Leave Windows 7 Homegroup, Cannot leave homegroup from broken computer

HI everyone,

We finally have all computers in the house running widows 7 and would like to set up a homegroup. The problem is a homegroup was set up a few years ago on a laptop, and that laptop is no longer functioning (fried motherboard) as I understand the only way to delete the homegroup is for all parties to leave that group. This is no longer possible because the last computer that is connected is not accessible.

I have tried setting up a new new network and wireless account thinking that might reset or change the location setting os the homegroup but it is still present.

The only option I have to do is "Join Homegroup" and I no longer have that computer and thus cannot access the password to that homegroup

Any thoughts or options?
Is there another way to delete or access this homegroup?

Thanks
