cant login to domain controller

I tried to dcpromo a domain controller and it looked like it worked for awhile, I stepped away and when I came back it was at the logon screen ,now I cannot login to it. Has anyone seen this happen before and if so how do I go about fixing this? Its a Windows 2003 server box.
