Are you loging in onto the network? if so you'll need the network user account name and logon

if you know the logon name and password make sure your logging in to the computer user profile not the networked one.

typically the user name is Administrator. 2 accounts are created admin and guest, though most the time Guest is not activated.

if your really outa luck Try a program called Ophcrack :]
either use it as a bootup disk or run it google it sourceforge!

I cant log in as i usually would the system request fo password


You can try the following steps

    1. Restart your computer.
    2. When the machine first starts you should gently tap the F8 key repeatedly until you are presented with a menu (Advance boot option).
    3. When you have the menu on the screen. Select the option for Safe Mode using the arrow keys.
    4. Then press enter on your keyboard to boot into Safe Mode.
    5. Log in as an Administrator
    6. Then go to Control Panel
    7. Select User Account
    8. Select the User for which you are being prompted to Enter password
    9. Then click on Remove password
    10. Restart the computer in Normal mode (without pressing F8 key)
    Hope this resolves your issue

There is no room to enter a domain.


Hi,
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.

Regards.

How do i change the configuration from domain to work group


even if you mistakenly joined a domain you can still log in through your existing id and password.
Once your press CTRL+ALT+DEL, you will see a login window with three fields namely: user id, password and Domain.
In the log in screen use the drop-down menu in front of Domain (which shows your new domain- most likey MSHome) and choose 'this computer'. After this, enter your old/existing user id and password and hit enter.
Please proceed to your system settings and change your domain back to Workgroup. Restart PC.

Cant log on


Something or someone has changed the system configuration from a Workgroup to a Domain. If you have no idea how this occurred, you will likely have to re-install Windows

Windows cannot connect domain either domain controller is down or otherwise unavailable or because your computer was not found


The resolution and workaround to solve the error is as below.
  1. Login to the Windows 2003 domain controller, and delete the computer account object from the Active Directory by using Microsoft Management Console (MMC) which you can always access from “Manage Your Server”.
  2. Log-in to the PC workstation as local administrator. If you cannot logon as local administrator, try to unplug the network cable and logon to the computer by using a domain administrator user that used to logon on the PC before, by using cached logon credentials feature.
  3. Go to Control Panel, then click on System icon, then go to Computer Name tab.
  4. Unjoin the computer from the domain by clicking on “Change”. You should see that Domain button is now selected. Remember your domain name in the text box. Select (Click) on “Workgroup” to remove the computer from the domain, and put any workgroup name in the text box (e.g. workgroup).
  5. Click OK to exit.
  6. Restart the computer (optional)
  7. Go back to the Control Panel, launch System properties and then go to Computer Name tab, and click on “Change”.
  8. Rejoin the domain by uncheck the Workgroup button and select (check) Domain button, and put in the domain name noted above into the text box.
  9. Click OK to exit.
  10. Reboot the PC.
This should solve the unable to logon to domain error, without changing or losing the user profiles on AD.

I entered a password for my new laptop, i entered it twice as you usually do. now when i try to log in, it doesn't recognise my password, what do i do?


If you have Windows XP Professional and have the ability to login to a domain, ensure you're logging in to your computer, since that is where you changed your password. If you can't see a dropdown menu with the domain or your computer, click the details button at the login screen.

Another thing you can try is to boot into safe mode and change the password, assuming you haven't set an administrator password. When booting up, press "F8" before the Windows loading screen pops up. Choose to boot into Safe Mode. If it gives you a login prompt, login as Administrator with either no password or a password you know for the administrator. You can then attempt to change the password.

My laptop has a password and i typed in the password that it should bet yet it isnt working, as soon as i turn the computer on it comes to a screen saying enter passowrd. My laptop is an acer travelmate...


Is this computer a member of a domain or just local?
If a domain member, contact your administrator to reset the password for you.

If local (or in a workgroup)
Log in as a local administrator, then you may be able to reset your password.

When logging in, type, Administrator as the user name and type in your password (if you remember). Try password as blank first if you haven't set a password. Default password is usually 12345

Once logged in:

Click Start, right-click My Computer, select Manage.
Under Computer Management --> Expand System Tools --> Local Users and Groups, the select Users folder.

Locate your user name on the right pane, right-click on your username, then select Set Password. Change your password.

Pls let me know if this solution worked for you.
