Question about IBM ThinkPad T40 2373 Notebook
I have a notebook runing WinXP. My old employer required me to log into the network/server, so the machine was set up to log in to a domain. I no longer work there but still have the machine, and when I boot the machine the domain log in screen comes up and asks for the network password. Is there a way to eliminate this log-in screen and change the machine to a normal (no passowrd) WinXP boot without doing an OS re-install?
Try removing the machine from the domain first. Right click on my computer, go to Properties, go to the Computer Name tab, and where it says " To rename thic computer or join domain, click Change", click on the Change button.
In the following screen, select Workgroup, give it any name and click OK.
Before you do this, make sure you have an account with admin privileges on the local machine (make sure you know username and password for this account).
