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.

the problem is that i cant log in as i usually would. the system will request for password. i don't usually password my laptop!. pls help me out.

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

Why is it that I cannot apply for a premium expert position when in fact I rank as a GURU with 85.+ rating, and 31 votes? I think I am qualified.


Hi carloadrian, I don't see any reason why you shouldn't be able to apply as a Premium Expert. I will refer this issue to our QA Team, and they will look into why you cannot apply. Please feel free to contact our Support Team directly at: http://www.fixya.com/contact

Forgotten o/s password unable to access pc


For Windows OS:

Enter setup: Start/Restart computer and press the F command shown at bottom of screen (F12 usually). Once in setup, scroll through the file menus until you find the option for password: to change the password, simply hit enter in the "old password" , enter in the "new" and "confirm new" (if applicable). This will reset for NO password, and you should be able to log into the OS.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.
