Logon problem in Windows XP

I connected to a home network yesterday and when I try to log in back today after disconnecting  the network, I am unable to log in to my Windows XP machine. Error message "Network Not Available". I have tried everything. Even restored registry from the recovery console. This happens even with my default admin account. PLEASE HELP!!

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Thank you, Crazy One.

I have tried all this already, Crazy One. Is there any other Microsoft Kb Article that would help me ?

May be Microsoft's KB article to delete all partitions and reinstall Windows. If you have tried that too, time to check your Network card with the help of 4d21

Thanks JonyBrv.

It seems ridiculous.

Could you please elaborate the solution 4d21 ? I will try that if you provide it.

I dont want to connect to the Network anymore. Ijust want to login to my system's account. But I am unable to do so. Is it a Network Monitoring Utility ?

Where you on a Domain?

Sriram,

I have a solution which may possibly work for you.

Try entering the BIOS and check whether Wake-Up on LAN is enabled by default. If so disable it.

You can also try reset the BIOS.

Hope this works.

Reconnect the network and if you boot ok then take yourself off the Domain.

You also can boot into safemode log on as the local administrator and remove yourself from the domain.

Instead of logging into the domain, change it to "This Computer" at the login screen
