Hey all. i made the mistake of allowing myself to succumb to boredom and i overclocked a comp at my school from 2.66ghz to 3.3ghz. tecnhically everything should've gone fine, the ram defnietly could take it. it basically wouldnt start up after that so i had to reset the bios. After that i booted up and it came to the windows xp login screen. i entered my username/password and the domain i wanted to connect to and it gave me an error like: "Windows could not connect to the domain, the domain controller is not accessable or is down. Contact system administrator." I set everything in the bios back to what is was. Any ideas?

maybe all you need to do is to enable the LAN connection under XP

Remove the computer from the domain  make it a member of Workgroup and join it again to your domain.
