    ok... at a lan this weekend, i left my computer at my friends house. I picked up my computer yesturday to turn it on and now when i go to log in, it says either bad password or possible incorrect domain.

    my friends swear that they didnt do anything more than just trying to get in. I did see them pounding away, trying to get in to my computer and getting fed up with it and just pushing buttons.

    Is there anyway to check to make sure that its not checking another domain for the administrator rather than my computer for the administrator?

    is there any buttons i can push at logon that will pop up the domain box???

    Have you set....

    Did you set a limited amount of attempts (password) to get into your account, if so, your account could be frozen.

    If you go in via safe mode you acould access the standard Aministrator account (which isn't accessable in the normal mode) and check your account and reset it.

    All you have to do to use the administrator account without booting into safe mode is hit CTRL-ALT-DEL twice.

    If your really stuck, you should format it and make sure you don't forget the password or lock the account after an amount of tries. I hope this helps...
