My dads company laptop was not connecting to the internet so I went to Network Connections. I then right clicked "Local Area Connection", clicked properties, then I dont remember if I clicked on a tab or properties of something but, there was a window and in the lower half it had 2 bullets on the left side to choose something looked like
_[]x
-----------------------------------------
cant remember what was here
-----------------------------------------
() text here
box here that had WIN typed in it

() text here
box here that I typed MSHOME into
-----------------------------------------

So now I am unable to login because it says the password is incorrect and that I should check to see my user name and domain are correct and then type my password and try again. The problem with changing domain is, I dont think I can from log on screen.

I tried logging on as Administrator and set a password in BIOS(that is how its done correct?) but that didnt work either .

Help before he goes to work today at 10 AM would be appreciated greatly

Thank You,
Red

Also, without remembering exactly what you changed how
can anyone help you. Your diagrams give me no clue.
Then when I read you logged in as administrator and
changed the password in the Bios I start thinking that
you should have never touched the laptop in the first
place. The bios runs when you first turn on the laptop
and has nothing to do with logging into windows.
If you can log on to windows with the local
administrator's account then you need to find a tech at
your dad's company and ask them for their help.

you are in a heap of trouble boy... your dad will have to go to his IT
people and beg them to put the machine back on the corporate network again
so he can do his work. nothing you can do to fix it there.
