Administrator login on network denied

July 2, 2011 at 09:43:48
Specs: Windows 7
I was changing the computer name on a group of networked computers but forgot to go to - Manage - Users - Administrator and set a password. I accessed Computer - System Properties - Clicked the "Change" button for "To rename this computer, click Change" and selected the "Workgroup" as opposed to the "Domain" option. When I restarted the computer the computer will not allow me to enter the administrator password to allow me access the computer. Can anyone give me a solution please? Thank you

If you didn't set a password, just use the Administrator login and click OK.

However, if this is a work computer, you should contact your IT department. They should know the local Admin account login and password. They can then change the authentication to the Domain.

Thanks Jenniffer, I tried that but no luck. I'll ask the IT dept for help as you said
