Is this computer a member of domain?
Posted 22 May 2005 - 06:38 AM
1) Would it be best to go into the control panel and set a password?
2) What could be causing me to NOT be able to access certain website like YAHOO? For example, I can open the website, but when I try to perform a search on any topic I get an error. I have attached the error I get as well
3) Why is it that some buttons that you normally can click on work and others don't? For example my internet banking website lets me enter the user name and password, but the button to click that allows me to access my information is not there and when I click in that space it is totally dead.
I appreciate any assistance, I am past frustration with these problems and can't buy a new system anytime soon.
PS: I can't even add "emoticons" to my post. These are things I seem to be dealing with.

Any assistance would be highly appreciated.

by the look of the start up screen ( your 1st pic) it wants to log on to a netwok(domain). Is this a work or home computer? If it is a home computer
did you buy it from work or at a sale?

It is a gateway computer that I bought strait from the store.
I didn't seem to start having all these problems until I got virus protection.
Any help that can be provided is welcome.

Sorry to keep on asking what might seem like the same Question but 2 + 2 is not adding up to 4. The way your computer starts up is the way computers connect to a Domain Network. So if this is true and it has always started like this then we need to get rid of the network connection problem and that should fix your other problems.
OR did someone change things and it started to happen like this?

When I first got the PC it would ask for a password. I found that unnecessary and was able to stop it somehow. I really can't remember.
Now since getting cable modem internet access the system asks a password. It could be something the cable guy did when he tried to get things up and running.
Before I got cable modem I wasn't able to get into websites like http://www.ureach.com
I type in what I know is my username and password and hit enter and it takes me back to the initial screen you get when you very first enter the website when no cookies are set up.

Okay, stab in the dark here..
Take a look on your desktop.. Is there a Network Neighbourhood or My Network Places icon on it??
If there is, right click on it and select "properties".. Now, change the logon requirement from "Client for Microsoft Networks" to "Windows Logon"..
Apply and okay out.. Reboot..
The logon may come up once more.. click OKAY.. Do NOT "x" out or "cancel"..

Please do not hijack someone else's thread.. You would be better served IF you started your own..
Who put the password on BIOS?? If it wasn't you, then someone must have had a reason to put it there!!

I did what you suggested and the password screen reappeared. I did as you said and X'd out of it. Rebooted as well. We'll see how it goes. I still seem to be having issues with getting onto certain areas of the web. Just now I got a
I am attaching a word document with a screen shot of the error I get.
Thanks for your assistance!
