Hello all,

I am using Win2K (old pc) @ my work and received a new pc with Win XP (new pc) on it. When I try to log into the new pc I get the error: Can’t log into domain …. Domain not available. Some one said it might be a DNS or WINS issue. So I compared it to the old pc that gets on the network just fine. All the settings are the same. I am using the following:

- Static IP
- Static DNS
- Wins server
- Check gateway too. Same as old pc

Everything seems to be the same except the IP address of course.

Any advice ?

I don't know if you are or aren't, but you should be working with your network administrator if you are not that person, and of course assuming there is such a person in your organization. Your computer may need to be added to the domain to allow it access.

I sloved it guys.. REALLY weird situation though let me explain this one.

Our PC's are imaged with WINXP, but with the touches of our company. They work with Microsoft and add there bits and pieces. What I had to do is log in as admin..... right click any program....run as and use the my domainname\userID and password. Log out and log in as myself... worked !!!
