cannot login to windows 2000 domain after changing computers name!!!!!!!!

I've just changed my w2k workstation PC name. I changed the name by login as Administrator right. After that, the system asked me to reboot. I did that. And now.... I can't logon to the network domain using any existing valid username and password, even an Administrator logon.

Can anyone tell me what to do now ? I can't even logon to the PC own domain. Is it possible to boot up to DOS to check the setting ?

type ipconfig /all at a command prompt and check what DNS suffix ur W2k workstation is using if incorrect u can change it from System Properties-Network identification - Properties - More

you will need to add the workstation to the domain at the pdc, you should also be able to logon to the workstation with the local admin account, if you still remember that. if not, then you can either get a program to hack the password, go from there.

Delete the old PC account from Server Manager on the server.

Place the workstation back into Workgroup mode.  Restart.

Re-join the domain.  Restart.

Hope that helps.
