No password prompt on win 7 Pro joined to 2008 server foundation domain

Hi all,

Strange one here. Client has a 2008 foundation server domain based network with windows 7 Pro laptops joined to the domain.

I have one user who takes their laptop home at night and then plugs back into the network in the morning using CAT 5 Cable. Yesterday while I was there she arrived and plugged her laptop into the network and booted it up. After pressing -  Ctrl /Alt / Delete no username or password prompt appears on the screen.

If I disconnect the network cable and reboot the username and password prompts appear. i can then reconnect the network cable and log in with no problems.

Anyone ever see this?

Thanks,

Frank

Hi dariusg,

Nothing has changed on the local machine. After using the "3 Finger Salute" the screen is blue with no prompts for a username selection or password. If she disconnects the network cable and reboots all is normal then plusg in the network cable she can log into the domain with no problems.

One thing though she does a fingerprint reader feature on the laptop.

The fingerprint reader could have the credentials stored

That was the problem. As soon as I disabled the finger print reader the password prompt windows appears. Thanks for your help.

Regards,
