I was hooked up to a wireless DSL Router for awhile.. It was hooked up through a freind and he ended up cutting me off. I am now having problems logging onto my OS. Everytime the log on screen comes up I type my U/p and I get an error "the system cannot log you on make sure your username and domain are incorrect, then type your password" I dont beleive I was on a Domianm and my u/p are correct.. Can someone please help? How do I log onto my OS?

Have you tried using the ADMINISTRATOR account?

Does the logon screen have three lines and what does the third line have listed?

Yes I tried the admin account and it still wont let me in.. Is it possible that the account is trying to locate the workgroup or domian thus not letting me in.. Like I said before my freind had configured the computer to run on his wireless router but I am not sure if it is a domain or workgroup!! There is no third line just username and password

Well did he know your username and password? Sounds like he changed it on you.

Normally there an options button, click on it and then the box with the domain details should appear. Select "this computer...". Then use the ID "Administrator", not Admin.
