    Hi everyone,
    I recently had a pc(old 300mhz) given to me.Hard drive was toast.So,I got a new hard drive and loaded win2kpro.No matter what I type in at logon password I get this message,

    "The system could not log you on due to the following error

    The specified domain either does not exist or could not be

    contacted.Please try again."


    I know I`m putting in the correct user and password. I`m signing on as Administrator. Any one know what to do?Thanks in advance.

    select options - and that should open the login screen and display the domain you may be logging in with - make sure its set to the computer for admin

    There should be no domain logon if you have not set up the networking client to check for a domain controller at logon. You should be using the admin account that you set up dunring the set up process and logging into the lacal workgroup.
