I can't log-in the Windows having the LAN-cable connected to network adapter. Hence I forced to unplug the cable prior to enter the Windows with my login and password, and then plug the cable again. Under an Windows I can access all the shared resources of the network and change my password on a DC. I have Windows XP Professional (this is just in case). I have already asked him to resolve my issue but he couldn't do anything, only that he suggested to reinstall the OS. But I have declined his offer because I have a lot of programs installed on my PC and settings as well. That situation occured after a system administrator reset my password, because I have forgotten it. And after a short period of time I start getting pop-up messages in a system tray that passwords on my PC and DC are not consisting. From that moment I can't to log-in the Windows in usual manner. Later I have changed my password in the system already with myself. Pop-up message has ceased to arise, but the problem is remain.

Press CTRL + ALT + DEL and select 'Lock Computer' when connected to the network. Wait 15 minutes and unlock using the latest password.

what you could do is ask the admin to delete your computer profile off the server, may be there is an issue with trust relationship somewhere.

or un-join the computer from domain and re-join. that should work

At first, delete cached password form your computer, then tell your admin, if he can reset password for you. If this does not help, than as innocentdevil wrote: rejoin computer to domain.

Log in with another username, if it does not then it's trust issues as stated above.
