    Hi!
    I am trying to connect my windows 10 notebook business network where I have a domain called clinlife but everytime I hit ok I get a message "An Active Directory Domain Controller( AD DC) for the domain Clinlife could not be contacted."

    What can I do to add this laptop to my network?

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community. We appreciate your interest in Windows 10.

    I understand the inconvenience caused to you with the user accounts on Windows 10.

    You may follow the methods below and check if it helps:

    Method 1:

    I suggest you enter into safe mode and enable built-in administrator and check with the status of User profile service.

    Step 1: Start computer in safe mode.

    1. Type
    Settings in the search box on the desktop, select Settings.

    2. Here select
    Change pc settings and then General.

    3. Scroll down to
    advanced startup, click Restart now.

    4. Click on Troubleshoot, Advanced options, and Startup Settings.

    2. Click on
    Command Prompt (admin) to open Command Prompt.

    3. Type the following command and hit Enter:

    net user administrator /active: yes (Check for the spaces)

    4. Now log off from the current user and try to login to the administrator account that is enabled.

    Note: Please follow the same steps and type net user administrator /active: no to disable admin account after the troubleshooting is done.

    Method 2:

    Check the status of User profile services.



    1. Press
    Windows + R to open Run command, type Services.msc
    and press Enter.

  5. Let's start with the basics. Is the laptop on the same network as the domain controller, and if so, are you able to ping the domain controller from the laptop?
