  • WinXP single PC now asking for logon to non-existent domain

    Hi,

    Hoping someone can help with this.

    Neighbour has a XP Pro SP2 standalone PC that would boot normally into windows requiring No logon or password.
    Yesterday after turning PC back on it now goes to the Welcome screen logon for her user name and requires a password to be entered. If left blank or a password tried a popup appears saying can't connect to domain.
    I tried ctrl-alt-del to get to the windows classic logon screen and the same popup appears even when trying to logon using Admin account. There's also no dropdown box in classic mode to tell it to logon to either domain or local. The PC has never been connected to a domain.
    Same thing occurs in safe mode as well.

    Any ideas how to get back into the PC and would a reinstall repair possibly fix the prob?

    Cheers
Working...
