    Hello,

    I hope someone can help me out of my trouble...

    I have gone into the "System Properties" in Control Panel
    and then to the "Netwrok Identification" tab. There I
    have clicked "Properties" and have changed the radio
    button form "Domain" to "Workgroup".

    Now when I am rebooting my laptop, when the log-on screen
    appears with my User Name, I enter the password that I
    have always entered, but it does not work, I am unable to
    log-on.

    I have done all this because I wanted to network my office
    laptop to my home desktop. The laptop was configured on a
    domain, while the desktop was configured on a workgroup.

    Would somebody know how I can undo this and restore my
    domain?

    Thanks big time to whomever can save my life...

    Bruno.

    You will have to connect the machine to the network where it belongs and ask
    your system administrator to rejoin it for you.

  4. To log in locally, you need to know a local Administrator account name and
    password on the workstation.

    The person who installed Windows should know this. There is no default
    password, it is always chosen by the installer person. If you don't know
    it, call your helpdesk or try a password reset disk as listed in the FAQ:

    http://securityadmin.info/faq.asp#password

    Then, to rejoin the domain, you have to plug your computer into the network
    with the domain and join it while you have someone around who can type in a
    Domain Administrator account name and password.
