I have a computer (Dell) running WIn xp pro (sp2- i think) that my work gave me when i left there, saying it wasn't worth giving back. I used it to work at home and login to thier network.
the other day, i was messing around with OUtlook to change it from the work email to my personal email and did something ( i don't know what), but when i turned the computer on a couple days later, I can't login.
There is only my login and password boxes, but the 3rd box which was the ?domain box, isn't there anymore. It won't accept any password.
I have no restore disk, no xp disk. I have been using it for several months and its been fine. whatever i did in outlook screwed it up and did this.
what do i do to be able to login again and use the computer?
I've tried it in safe mode, and it just brings me to the same login page with the same issues- not recognizing password/login. I've tried administrator, and anythng i can think of for password.
I can't get it.
There MUST be something I can do!
Please help.

Seems you have changed the machine from domain to workgroup. You need to log on to the machine as Administrator and create a new profile for yourself.

Contact the *work* where you got the machine and ask for it. I would also ask for a copy of the OS cd that is installed since you will need that as well.
