Question about Dell LATITUDE Computers & Internet
Since you bought the system from someone you will need to ask the lady for a password or use the Windows disk and format, reinstall Windows, Drivers and Software into the system. The system may have been on a domain when it was maybe at a business. Hopefully, the lady gave you all the disk that are needed to reinstall windows and drivers as well as any software that came on the system. For an IP you will need to set the computer up on the internet. If you need information on reinstalling windows and drivers you can email me at my email address listed below.

Important: Do not select "System Administrator (root)". This is actually a reference to the root user. Do not confuse it with a normal administrator account.

I'm assuming that the operating system is XP.
Log in to your account as you usually would. Right click on My Computer and select Properties from the list. Click on the Computer Name tab. Where it says "To rename this computer or join a domain" click on change. A new window will pop up so click on Workgroup. In the typing plane if it say's MSHOME, delete that and type WORKGROUP make sure you type it in uppercase (capital letters).
When you've done that click OK.
The computer will tell you that you have to restart the computer for the changes to take effect so please restart the computer.
Once the computer has restarted you can check if the domain has changed to WORKGROUP.
Please post back if you need anymore help.
