A Computer on Network Requires Password from Only 1 of 4

Q: A Computer on Network Requires Password from Only 1 of 4

Hello friends,

I am new here, I just received a new work computer that runs Windows 8. After connecting it to the network I had trouble with it being password protected and found help on this form post by Topgundcp. The new computer is now accessible from 3 of the other 4 (Win XP) computers but still locked for 1 computer. I can not figure out why or a solution, hopefully someone here knows the answer to this dilemma.

Thank you,
-W

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A:Network Switch requires password

The NAS still may require a password of some sort to keep unwanted people out of it. What model of NAS do you have?

I have a peculiar issue where I would need to have "Network and Sharing Center" open to be able to see that my my laptop's wireless connection. I would see the signal bar and also see the dreaded red x.

Even when I have it open, I can see it refreshing each second; like its losing connection and reestablishing.

My internet connection is working and has no issues.

What can this be?

Network and Sharing Center - Open
Network and Sharing Center - Open and refreshed


Network and Sharing Center - Closed

A:Correct Network Tray Icon - Requires Network and Sharing Center Open??

That will probably be your Ethernet connection, not your wireless adapter, you can disable it in the bios if you don't use it.

there are a few password recovery apps out there that you can use, but most of them (if not all) you have to pay for. Some of them have demo's you can d/l and try for free that might help your immediate problem. do a search in google on password recovery and try a few out; I can't access them myself to give you a link as they're classed as 'hacker' sites and blocked by my work's firewall

A:Solved: xp share requires password

oh well..

I re-enabled "simple file sharing" this solved the problem.

However.. it still does not explain why one of my computers was able to perform the same operation with simple file sharing disabled, even though the everyone group was added. (worked on one computer but not the other). and yes i double checked accounts and passwords.

It worked on one but not another. weird.

If you come across this post and you DO want to share with a password. just create another account on your machine, with a password, add the new account, create the share, add the user (to your share) in your folder share permisssions (click the add button and type in the name (it WILL find it), and finally have your user map to the folder with the "map network drive feature" (right click "my computer" > map network drive) > (pick any letter not already used) on the other machine and give them the user name and password of you new limited account and it will work. make sure they check the reconnect at login box, then they wont have to login every time.

Anyways... It works now.

Our family laptop (HP Pavillion g7, Windows 7) suddenly needs a password to log in. We did not have a password set for this computer. We were on it this weekend and it did not require a password. Can not log in safe mode. If this is a virus, how do we get rid of it?

A:Laptop suddenly requires password for log in

Is it possible someone who was accessing the computer this past weekend decided to put one on? It could be a virus that has instantiated a password. At this point, you have two options. One, you can use a DOS Boot CD and command line options to erase or reset the password. Two, you can do a repair install. I would go for the latter as that at least better guarantees that the virus will be gone, if one is on there.

Hi

This just started Monday morning. The night before everything was working properly. And at 9am Monday morning, I could no longer access hotmail, work Email via remote desktop, and most forums that require a login. It just hangs at "connecting," and then times out. Normal websites work fine. This was on my desktop.

I've got Norton and have uninstalled and reinstalled. I've tried to do a system restore and it won't let me do it. I've changed routers and also connected up to a laptop and it's the same with both.

I've contacted the service provider who have tried to change a few of my WAN settings with no luck. Can you help?

The only thing that I did do the night before was to update my Java to version 6 update 18.

A:I cannot access any website that requires a password

Have you got all of the Windows Updates installed if not please do this now.
Then check your problem again if this doesn't solve it come back here.

Dell desktop, 32 bit VISTA. Machine was on for several months. After a recent shutdown, can't get PC to boot. BIOS process stops at point where it requests entry of system password. Owner has never entered a Password and has no records showing what it might be. The DELL supplied reinstall DVD is not being seen in the boot process. F2 and F12 keys do not override this and do not open the BIOS. Is there another way to enter the BIOS? I'd like to avoid reflashing the BIOS. Is the CMOS on a 2007 DELL desktop likely to have some manual method of returning the BIOS to its default settings? I don't yet have access to a bootable CD for VISTA. Will a bootable CD get by the password screen? If not I believe resetting the CMOS may be the solution.

Yikes! I am getting a popup on my igoogle homepage on my Windows Vista computer that ask for a username and password. It pops up 2-3 times a day. It states "The server 128.194.24410 at axview requires a username and password" and has fields to fill in. Windows security gives a warning that this is not secure. Has anyone come across this before or know a way to get rid of it. I use McAfee Security and it does not find a problem, nor did Windows Defender.

Hi all,

Long time XP user and I just starting using Windows 7 beta. I really like it so far. Except there's a few things I can't figure out.

I'm trying to connect to my own Wifi Network and it has WEP encryption (I know I should use WPA but for now, let's say i'm stuck with WEP), Windows 7 keeps prompting me for a user name, password after I already entire my WEP key. WHY??? XP never asked me for that. I tried the admin password for my router, didn't work. What is with this new "User name, password" requirement?

Please help. It's really fustrating. The only way around it is to manually add network. There must be something I'm doing something wrong. Thanks in advance for your help.

dsharky; Welcome to Windows Seven Forums! Nice to meet you! And yes, I have known a few days of that kind of frustration also.

My first guess would be you have "Password Protected Sharing" turned on. Look at this screenshot of the "Advanced Sharing Settings" and compare with yours?




Post back if this doesn't solve your password issue?

It's a HP Pavilion 23 desktop. New. Windows 8. For 2 months it's never done that. When it comes out of sleep it comes to the lock screen and then asks for a password. I don't mind this when first in the morning booting up. But in the 2 months I've had it ... it never did this. I have had a number of Windows updates recently. Could that have affected it?

I just purchased a new Dell with Windows 7 - Internet Explorer 9 and have transferred the Microsoft Expressions Webs that I had under my old Dell Win XP.

When I try to publish websites with the Windows 7 version I receive a Windows Security pop up with the message Warning the server is requesting that your username and password be sent in an insecure manner. If I enter the login & password in this pop up it continues to pop back up and nothing happens.

These publishing settings work with the XP so it's not a problem with the internet, but for some reason the Windows 7 is not allowing me to publish. I have looked at all windows security options, I have full control of everything and have not been able to find an answer.

Help is greatly appreciated.

Hello Lilliam, welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

Hi,
So usually when I put my PC to sleep, I can just wake it up and be greeted with my desktop.
Now everytime I wake it up, it says my PC is locked and I have to enter my password to log in.

I gone into power management it says "Yes" to require password when login, however I will not let me change it.

The only thing that has changed is I upgraded my Home Premium copy to a professional copy.

A:PC requires password when waken from sleep

Type netplwiz into start/search and hit Enter. There you uncheck the little box, click Apply and provide your password (twice). Then OK > OK. Now it will log in automatically and should also work for sleep.

I am operating on Windows 7 OS and am having difficulty with Outlook for Office 2010. It always asks for a password each time I sign on and when I open an email. For some reason it doesn't store my password.
 

A:Outook 2010 always requires password

That problem is by no means unique to Outlook 2010, it happens also on Outlook 2007 and on the version before that, and neither is it unique to Windows 7.

Try putting your POP3 server name and password into the "Credential Manager" in Control Panel. For good measure I entered my email credentials twice -- in "Windows Credentials" and in "Generic Credentials". I hardly see that pesky password prompt since doing that.

Hello Erica, and welcome to Ten Forums.

Since this has just recently happened, you may be able to do a system restore using a restore point dated before it happened to hopefully quickly undo and fix this.

Been using Win7 since beta. However, i just now installed it at work and this is the first time i'm using win7 joined to a domain. I assuming being joined to a domain is what's causing the problem. The problem being that each time the UAC prompt comes up, i dont just get a yes/no click, i have to enter in my username and password each time. And it's the same user/pass that i'm logged in with.

Is there any way to do away with the requirement of having to enter my user/pass each time? I dont mind so much just having to click yes or no, but constantly having to re-enter my login info is getting annoying.

A:UAC in domain requires username and password each time

I have not dealt with this, but,,, you may need to add yourself as an Admin to the local PC.

Since I have not done this in 7, maybe someone else can provide the way of doing it when joined to the domain.

However, are you a Domain User or Domain Admin?

Brink?

I know Windows 10 is new and that we will all experience more or less serious bugs over the next months. For the most part Windows 10 really works well on my Iconia W510. I post this as a thread here to see if I am the only one who has to enter the system password on wakeup even though it is disabled? I have disabled require password on wakeup on the Power Options page and when I recheck, it is disabled. But, every time I wakey the PC up from sleep I still have to enter the system password. Compared to most of the other reported problems here and elsewhere with Windows 10, I know I should not complain But it is still annoying.

Do you have a screen saver enabled? They will often be set to require a password also, superseding the power settings.

I have a profile setup on my workstation on a domain.
It seems everytime I plug in a USB flash drive, it displays that the computer recongizes it with a little balloon tip in the bottom right hand corner. It then appears as if it is going to add the device, but right before you can access it - A dialog box comes up. It asks for the administrative password in order to add the device.

Does anyone know where this problem could be occuring?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I hardly even need a password for my puter. My online passwords are high security, long and complex. I really do not want to type those in every time I start. I do have a much simpler one that I've been using for the laptop.

I've even selected to start without a password, but it still asks for my Live pw. I've also tried cancelling my Live account, but haven't been able to so far. I would hate to give up my Outlook email account, and might have to if I cancel live.

But something has to give. If I can't get a few of these pains taken care of, I'm slamming it in the can and going back to 7.

A:Squid proxy-caching web server requires a username and password.

Sounds like you have installed something that requires this proxy server.

Let's have some real information about the environment.
Please supply the following info, exact make and models of the equipment please.

Name of your ISP (Internet Service Provider).
Make and exact model of the broadband modem.
Make and exact model and hardware version of the router (if a separate unit).
Model numbers can usually be obtained from the label on the device.
Connection type, wired or wireless.
If wireless, encryption used, (none, WEP, WPA, or WPA2)
Version and patch level of Windows on all affected machines, i.e. XP-Home (or XP-Pro), SP1-SP2, Vista, etc.
The Internet Browser in use, IE, Firefox, Opera, etc.


Please give an exact description of your problem symptoms, including the exact text of any error messages.


If you're using a wireless connection, have you tried a direct connection with a cable to see if that changes the symptoms?
For wireless issues, have you disabled all encryption on the router to see if you can connect that way?
Have you connected directly to the broadband modem to see if this is a router or modem/ISP issue?
If there are other computers on the same network, are they experiencing the same issue, or do they function normally?


On any affected computer, I'd also like to see this:

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD (COMMAND for W98/WME) to open a command prompt:

Type the following commands:

PING 206.190.60.37

PING yahoo.com

NBTSTAT -n

IPCONFIG /ALL

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
Paste the results in a message here.

If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.

UPnP service and SSDP service is set to auto on the XP box. The folder is shared publicly on the network, not just local. Vista seems to think that it needs authentication to access the file. How could I disable this. Oh, and password protection is already disabled.

you have just answered your own question, you have shared the files publicly, which means that vista is reading the files as public files and deem them a security threat. Changing your connection to a private network on the vista rig should fix the problem.

In an effort to allow connectivity with a virtual machine using VMware Player, I deleted the Network Bridge. While this indeed enabled connectivity I now find that Metro apps (at least iHeart radio, Weather) requiring Internet connectivity no longer work. I have already run the diagnostics suggested to no avail.

So, is there a solution that allows Metro apps without the Network Bridge?

A network bridge isn't required for Metro to function.

More than likely the VMware player is creating the problem.

No known user name and password works. I've tried a number of suggestions found on this forum (system time/date, security and sharing permissions (both set to everyone full control), etc. and nothing has changed. I've about pulled my hair out on this one. Any help appreciated.

After 5 days of constantly checking the shares the problem has slowly resolved to the point that delta is now almost never asked for a network password when accessing bravo. Nothing done in the last 5 days except occasionally retrying the share. From other posts in various forums intermittently asking for a network password appears to be an occasional quirk of Win 7 workgroup networking especially with Home Premium. No one seems to have found a reason or a fix.

Hello,

I have just gotten a new laptop from work, and I am having some issues connecting to wireless networks with it. I have no issues connecting at home with my personal laptop, and had no issues with my previous work computer. My laptop is running on Windows XP SP2, and is a Lenovo W500 4063-3FU. I have tried resetting my wireless router, and have installed the latest version of the wireless adapter drivers from Lenovo's website with no luck.

What happens is that I will connect to the network, and have a great connection for ~10 minutes, when my computer will show that I am connected, but I will not be able to load any new webpages. I use Windows to repair my wireless connection, which will succeed, but then 10 minutes later the problem repeats.

Any help or advice is greatly appreciated!

Hello - I am on a network that contains both XP and Windows 7 computers. The problem at hand is on a Windows 7 computer (Computer 9). The XP computer is Computer 4. I succeeded in accessing Computer 4 from Computer 9 by typing my Computer 4 credentials into a window that popped up on Computer 9 the first time that I attempted to access Computer 4 from Computer 9. After that, the password on Computer 4 was changed. Now, when I try to access Computer 4 from Computer 9, I receive the following message:

"Windows cannot access \\COMPUTER 4
You do not have permission to access \\COMPUTER-4. Contact your network administrator to request access."

Can anyone please tell me how to access the pop-up window on Computer 9 that will let me type in the new Computer 4 password? Thank you.

I took my old desktop which had a direct connect to a DSL modem and setup it up for as the family computer with wireless access it has internet access just fine I changed its computer-name from Shawn under System Advanced settings to quot family quot so that I could use the same name Shawn for my new desktop which connects via ethernet to the DSL wireless modem I can see the old desktop from the new desktop under network in explorer on the new desktop So i have quot Shawn quot new and quot Shawn-PC quot old but I cannot log in via wireless to the or computer: network home log Cannot into password wrong name old computer The old has the new Cannot log into home network computer: name or password wrong login name quot family quot but I understand the network only goes by the original computer name But quot Shawn quot or quot Shawn-PC quot does not get me in I never changed the password on the old desktop but I did turn it off But even using the old password does not work How can I get access to the shared files on the old shawn-renamed-family computer from my new desktop Thanks win SP x

A:Cannot log into home network computer: name or password wrong

To access the machine using the user account 'Family' you would enter the following at that prompt:

SHAWN-PC\Family

Then enter the password for that account on the old machine.



   Tip
It is advised to use an Administrator account when providing credentials. For example Family should be a system Administrator


My apologies if I misinterpreted your problem. You could remove all authentication procedures by going to network and sharing centre > Change Advanced Sharing Settings and then turning off Password Protected Sharing



Hope This Helps,
Josh!

I have a small home network set up with 4 PCs (1 laptop & 3 desktop). I can see all my computers in my networks but I cannot connect to one of my desktops using my laptop. All the other computers/laptops can read and transfer files without a problem except for the laptop connecting to one of the PCs.

Both the laptop and the PC that is asking for a network password are on the same version of Windows 7 Home. I have file and printer sharing enabled. All are on the same workgroup. I have firewall off and I have turned off password protected sharing yet when I try to connect or print from my laptop to the one PC it asks for a password and I can't figure out why.

This only started recently a week ago. Prior to that never had this problem and shared files/printer without a problem

Hi.

I have two computers wired together, one is my workstation and the other is a dedicated render node. Both have the same user name and password and the network connection between the two was working fine until I changed the computer name of the render node. Now when ever I click on the render node from the network list on my workstation I'm asked for a user name and password, I enter the user name and password for the render node but it is no longer recognised. I can still access the workstation from the render node network list. Any ideas anyone?

Hi, did you make any changes to your pc, before this happened?
Will it start in Safe Mode - tap F8 as the pc is starting up?

If you can get into Safe Mode.
Start > Run > Type
msconfig
Click Launch System restore.

Then choose a date prior to the problem.

If the above does not work and you have the Xp install Cd.
Boot from the Xp install Cd...when prompted press [R]
Choose Windows installation [typically by pressing [1]
When prompted for password.
Press Enter.
Type
chkdsk /r
[note space after chkdsk]
Let it scan the pc.

A:Password required for access to Win2K computer in home network

It sounds like your trying to connect to the administrative share on the 2K machine. Try this.

Right click on the drive in question on the 2K machine and select Sharing... Add a new share and grant access rights to everyone.

Create an account on the 2K machine with the same name/password as is used to logon to the W98 machine. It's not necessary to logon to the 2K machine with this account, it just has to have permission to access the shared files.

This should eliminate the password prompt.

After reinstalling Vista on the "upstairs" machine and rebuilding our home network (cable through router) the Vista machine can access files on the XP machine . . . but not the reverse. Although I can see the two Vista drives OK I'm prompted for a usernameassword, a curiosity since only one passwordless user exists in our Vista setup. (Entering that username and leaving the password blank still gave a "this drive is not accessible" error.)

I can follow the instructions on this page (File and Printer Sharing in Windows Vista) partway through, but when I get to the window shown in Figure 6 the "Share" button is grayed out. I did go into "Advanced Sharing" and put a check in the "Share this folder" check box, but that didn't eliminate the password requirement.

Thanks for any help -

Computer hibernates satisifactorily but one half the time it must be restarted (with a password) to function.

A:Computer requires restart after sleeping

Keoweekid, welcome to the forum. It sounds like a glitch has occurred in the system.  I suggest going into the Control Panel / Power Options and changing all settings to Never.  Once this is done, reboot the computer.  Then, go back into the Control Panel and change the settings to what you want them to be.  This may solve your problem.  If this doesn't solve your problem, you may have to do a System Recovery. Also, if you are the only user of the computer, you can set it to boot with Auto logon.  This way you won't have to use a PW everytime you logon.  I have mine setup this way. Please click the Thumbs up + button if I have helped you and click Accept as Solution if your problem is solved.

When I let my computer run unattended, usually but not always, it will freeze and I must manually shut it down and reboot. Often the laptop feels very warm as if it is locked in a infinite computing cycle. On two occasions, out of the blue, I have seen flashing lines and a frozen screen requiring manual shut down. The word and excel icons have been replaced with generic icons but work normally. Spinrite finds no hard drive problems and several antiviral programs detect no viruses.

Occasionally, when I must manually reboot, the cursor hangs in the upper left corner and the computer is totally unresponsive to any command including manual shut down. However, if I close and open the lid, windows start up is initiated.

Any suggestions appreciated.

Thanks,

John

Hi, my computer is freezing up requiring a manual shut down and sometimes restarts by itself. My cpu fan went bad and i just had that replaced. Sometimes it takes 30-45 min before it acts up but most of the time it does it shortly after i boot it up. I have done a full reformat on the computer, installed windows again and everything. I am not too computer savvy so i don't know what else to do about this, i am at my wits end and i need to solve this problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated

did you replace it yourself or did you take it somewhere?

I have a Samsung HD103UJ 1TB HDD that works fine on my HP DV7 laptop connected via USB. It mounts normally and all is well.

On my HP Pavilion desktop with a newly installed Windows 7 O/S, the drive can be seen in Device Manager, but when I open Disk Management, it says it needs to be initialized. I have not initialized it due to the fear of wiping out the content. I tried both USB and Sata with the same result. Both computers are running Windows 7 SP1 with the latest updates. Any suggestions?

A:Working drive requires Initialization on different computer

If it has a letter, run a chkdsk /f on it.

In an elevated command prompt (run as admin) type: (I'm assuming D) (if it's not, substitute)

chkdsk d: /f

Hello Everyone,

Here lately my Windows XP system has been freezing randomly aup to five times a day. It requires a manual reboot with me holding the power button in for 5 seconds.

I use Trend Micro Internet security for spyware, virus protection etc. It has been very reliable the past few years and I rarely have problems with my computer. However, this is one problem that I haven't yet been able to solve.

If there is anyone out there that could assist me with this it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

A:Computer freezing randomly - requires reboot

This might or might not help but is worth trying.
In administrator command prompt run sfc /scannow.

Then run Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

in administrator command prompt & reboot & run sfc again.

Post back with results.

Both commands take a while to finish.

A:Every day my computer requires ipconfig /release, renew

Hi zocheyado,

Since the same issue occurs with the 'wired and wireless connection', it could be a 'corrupt firewall'. Please share the 'firewall' installed in the system. You may try to 'disable' the 'anti-virus / firewall' and see if that works.

Also check the performance of the internet in 'Safe Mode with Networking'.

In the mean while, you may also try to 'Reset IP' and 'Reset Winsock Catalogue'. You may find the following steps useful:
1. Click How to reset Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) to run the 'Microsoft Fixit' and 'Reset Internet Protocol'
2. If the issue persists, also try type the following command in an 'Elevated Command Prompt' window: 'netsh winsock reset catalog' (without quotations)

For an 'Elevated Command Prompt' check this link: Elevated Command Prompt

Hope this helps. Do reply if you have any further questions; would be glad to assist.

Hello, I have been getting random freezes ever since I installed windows 7 starter... I had no problems before when this PC was running windows 7 trial version. When it happens my PC becomes unresponsive and whatever audio is played is looped(at a certain frequency) which is very annoying.. The only thing that functions is the CD/DVD drive. I have been trying to search for solutions but whatever solution I try from people with the same problem as me doesnt work. Please help me I don't know much about computers..
 
Edit: Also I can't seem to recreate this freezing thing. but most of the time it happens when I'm playing games... Although it sometimes happens even when I'm just browsing.
 
PS: Sorry for my english, im not american btw haha

AFAIK...Windows 7 Starter is an OEM version already installed in a system.
 
Please explain what you did when you "installed" it, where you obtained the Win Starter version from, etc.

Check your temp readings in Bios. Also clean your tower out with a can of compressed air. Also Check your Hard drive to see if it is failing.

Downloading UBCD which is in my signature.Burn the ISO Image to a blank CD using Imgburn (How to burn a ISO Image using Imgburn) burn at lowest speed. With the newly burned cd boot with the cd go to HDD>Diagnostics>The make and model of your hard drive, Seagate, Maxtor, Drive Fitness which is Hitachi, Or Western Digital. Perform a short and long test. Could also be called "Standard" and "Extended" test or also "Comprehensive" test.

If you can not find the right test for your hard drive your OEM computer may have it's own hard drive diagnostics testing tool. Refer to your OEM computer documentation to find out how to access these test. Also try going to the manufacture of your machine to find documentation about it. Also consider going to the manufacture of your hard drive to look to see if they have hard drive diagnostics test. The ideal test or method would include an ISO that could be burned via an image to a cd which would be made bootable.

A:BSOD now occuring 3+ times daily - computer illiterature requires help

I'm not a BSOD expert and our experts are very busy handling a lot of crash problems. Until one shows up you could try running some basic things to see if they help. I'd start out with a system file checker scan. This scan will look for and attempt to replace incorrect, corrupted, changed/modified, or damaged versions of your system files with the correct versions if possible. Run the scan from an elevated command prompt (option two.) If problems are found run the scan 3 times rebooting in between each scan.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

You could also check your hard drive to see if it has any issues like bad sectors (where things like your operating system, documents, etc reside.)

Disk Check

And don't overlook some common issues like an overheating computer. Make sure you have good ventilation around it, vents are free of dust, etc. A free utility called Speccy is available for download. It can provide real-time monitoring of temps for the hard drive, graphics card, and the processor. And don't forget to run a full security scan with your resident anti-malware. It wouldn't hurt to get a "second opinion" by running the free, and highly recommended, Malwarebytes.

Speccy - System Information - Free Download

Malwarebytes

And you could also go through this trobleshooting checklist prepared by one of the Forum experts. It's fairly time consuming but has helped many people isolate specific issues.

So recently I've been this problem with my computer. It's always at a random time, it doesn't necessarily seem to have a specific pattern, but it always seems to happen when I'm either playing a game, listening to music, or watching a video. It could be connected, or it could happen at random, I'm not sure. Basically the computer completely locks up, freezes entirely, and the sound loops/stutters on the last sound that was being played endlessly. It NEVER crashes, and I do not ever receive a BSOD. I have tested, waiting over 15 minutes for it to do anything, it simply sits there and remains locked up and frozen until I hard restart my computer.

I have absolutely no idea what's causing this, as I've never had an issue with my computer like this, especially something that doesn't produce atleast an error or BSOD of some kind, so it's rather puzzling.

HI,
Can someone explain to me how you go about syncronising the Windows 98 password with a network password, for when dialling in remotely to access corporate Network
 

A:Syncronising windows Password with Network Password?

Are you referring to your win98 windows logon pass, like at system startup?

i recently bought a windows 7 home premium tablet with the intent of using it as a portable media player. for some reason i cannot connect to my media server's shared drive. the server is running windows xp and share permissions are configured properly. but any time i try to open the share on the tablet i get a the network password is incorrect. the thing is that i can remote desktop into the server using the same username an password. so please for the love of god fix this because my sanity relies on it.

My network contains:
10 PCs and laptops running (Windows7 & Windows8).
2 network printers
1 Network Drive (WD Mybook Live Duo)
Workgroup environment

Here everything is fine. But one of the windows 8 laptop cannot access network folder. It prompt username and password. whenever I am trying the username and password it says login failure. But the same username and password works for all other machines. I tried disable firewall, another windows profile etc.

From what I have read the WD Mybook has problems with certain Windows 8 machines.

There is a long thread about this at the WD forums, maybe you should read through it and see if the latest firmware has fixed this bug.

I work at a school and had to take apart the IT suite for the new pc's to be fitted(36 DELL computers),all the old pc's have been put in classrooms.The problem is this:

When the old pcs were hooked to the network you had to enter username and password before they would log in to windows/network.they was taken off the network and a new server set up.now when you start one of the old pcs,you get promted for username and pass word but because its not on the network you cant login,and you cant login to the network.(hope you understand that).

The IT guy at work just cant work out what to do.Any ideas?
 

A:Network password

Sounds like the old PCs were setup on a domain controller. If so, usernames and passwords are validated on the DC, not the local box.
BUT, when the user/pass box pops up, do you have 3 boxes? One for user, one for pass and a 3rd for what you are logging in to. The 3rd box should be changed to the name of the local PC itself, sometimes just called local. And a user/pass should be used of an account that is stored ON the local box, not on the DC. Such as "administrator", the default XP admin account.

If, per chance, the person who set it up originally, removed all local accounts, you may be in trouble. Though Windows usually caches domain user/pass for like 10 days. If it's been longer then that, you can't log in when not connected to the DC.

But before getting to deep in it, can you log on to the local PC?
