    I reset my computer bc I wanted the space to play that stupid anime game. And I ruined my computer. It doesn't give an option to input a username/password. It doesn't let me connect to the internet. And the thing where you press down shift doesn't work either. I got this computer for free from my school. But I dropped out. so I don't think there's a chance to remove my laptop from their domain or whatever you call it. I have absolutely NO money to buy windows 10 let alone a new laptop. If there's any hope at all. Lmk. I'm also very slow when learning without images so-"The specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted" [​IMG]

  2. "The specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted"

    Hey William, thanks for the quick reply.

    Can you specify what you mean by, "In either case, in order to logon as the local administrator when the computer is a member of a domain, you need to enter it in the format of .\administrator.

    The .\ informs the computer to use a local account." ?

    I apologize again for my technical vocabulary.

    *p.s. if you intended for me to enter .\administrator into the username and password blanks, I did that and the same message came up, "The specified domain either does not exist or could not
    be contacted."

    The specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted

    I reset my pc and kept files. It suddenly started to undo changes. So I reset it again, and it couldn't boot anymore. I reset it 3 more times and now I can't login. It just says "The specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted" I tried
    to reset it again but now there is no option to, I can't even login into safe mode, it gives the same message.
