How do I Get back on a Domain
Posted on 2008-10-09
I have a laptop running xp professional. Yesterday, I wanted to use it to connect to my home network. It is normally part of a domain. I changed the workgroup and removed it from the domain.
Apparently the username and password for the domain is different than the one for the computer itself.
When I turn on the computer, I see the Log On to Windows box, but if I use the domain's username and password, it won't let me on.
Since we do not know what the username and password is, I need to reconnect to the domain. However, I am not sure if this is possible. I thought the login box would provide a domain selection option, but it doesnt - it just has username and password. If i click options, it shows or hides the "shut down" button, but doesn't do anything else.
Is there a way to login to a domain, or to choose a domain from the login box?
Thanks for your help!!!!
