I have been setting up a wireless network and this was my last machine.
I was just checking the "my computer" properties and it is set to workgroup but also i think it used to be on a domain at some point in its life, but the current owner doesnt know much about this....
I rebooted the pc and usually I press control alt and delete, it comes up with a message box about authorised access and so on too. and then I type in the password (lowercase) and windows loads
But now the authorisation box does not disappear, I have a feeling I clicked on a box or something in the "my computer" properties and the original password is now being declined
I have tried changing the user to administrator, ive tried a "blank" password and ive rebooted abt 20 times trying all the different comfigurations such as safe mode, last knoen good configuration and so on.
Because Im not sure what ive done im not sure whats wrong, maybe there is something in the bios.
The PC is windows 2000 professional
office 2000 profressional
The machine is a HP Compaq dx6100mt
**Originally it did have xp professional installed a long time ago, but it wasnt compatible for the company software**
So thats why its on 2000 pro
I hope someone can help me please
