Cannot log into windows XP SP2 for the first time RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • To whom it may concern, I am attempting to assist a friend with re-installing windows on her pc. I have completed the instalation, and am currently stuck at the user sign in screen. I have two options "owner" and "guest" . I have attempted to use both options, however nether one is working. I get an error message " The specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted" Please try again or contact your system administrator. I am personaly unfamiliar with this error message. If someone could contact me with instructions on how to fix this problem, i would greatly appreciate it. This is a retail copy of windows xp service pack two, and I have used it previously on my own system, before I upgraded to windows vista. The laptop I have installed it on has the designed for windows xp tag on it also. I have gone into system options at startup and deleted both the administrator AND system passwords.
