Windows 7 workstation on domain network , rebooted workstation and login is all gone

Q: Windows 7 workstation on domain network , rebooted workstation and login is all gone

So I rebooted the win7 workstation went to login to it normally with the users credentials and it acts like its a new user login everything is default all pst's, docs, favs, everything is gone . If you browse the windows explorer you can see there are other similar profiles that it looks like used to be . What would happen if I tried to rename a user in Active directory?

Preferred Solution: Windows 7 workstation on domain network , rebooted workstation and login is all gone

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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

We have a workstation here that is running NT 4 wkstn and it will join our domain, but we can't see it in Active Directory Users and Computers. Obviously, it can't login to the domain for this reason. Does anyone have any ideas why? Thank you.

Hi Everyone,

I am currently using a Windows 7 (x64) computer on a Domain. The Domain Controller is a Windows 2008 R2 computer. I have Administrator access to the Windows Server as a result I can alter any settings that I see fit.

Recently a number of staff members have been logging onto my Windows 7 computer without my consent.

I would like to limit access to my computer so that only my Domain Account can logon. Ideally this will mean only allowing my personal Domain Account access, and by extension prevent the Domain Administrator from logging on as well. I am not the only staff member with Domain Administrator privileges, and I ultimately want to make my computer inaccessible to all staff with the exception of myself (naturally).

Any suggestions here will be greatly appreciated.

Kind Regards,


A:Limiting access to a Windows 7 computer (workstation) that is on a Domain

Unfortunately we can not advise on this issue as it could be in breach of the company's policies and we have no way of proving what rights you have to block access to your account. We would be totally in the wrong if we were to give any advice that could circumvent company policy.

If you are permitted to make such changes then your Domain Administrator is the person you need to ask.

To synchronize the contacts and messages with my Exchange Server, Windows 10 requires an increase of the work stations security, forcing a new Windows login
after a specified inactivity period.
Once the increased security is implemented users can only play with an inactivity period range of 1 to 5 minutes.

In my capacity of Administrator of the network, I would like to be able to increase the value of the inactivity value beyond 5 minutes for those stations that
are not exposed to public access, which requires that Microsoft communicate to me the name and address of the Register key which controls the inactivity period after which a new login is required.

I really need that Register key to resolve my problem!

I'm helping a Dental Office get their current workstations upgraded. All workstations are complete and ready to swap out the old hardware, except i am worried that when the users go to log back into the domain from the new pc's, they won't be able to.

The previous IT guy said they are local profiles, located on each individual PC and not on the server? I thought setting up a Domain was so people could log in from any computer on the network?

I recently rebuilt a Windows XP Pro workstation one of my client's sites. They have a domain server running Windows 2003 SBS, and the workstation is connected via a Linksys wireless network.

After successfully logging on the domain, I can access everything just fine. I begin to browse shares on the server with no problem for about a minute, then get a popup saying "working offline" and can no longer browse.

After this happens, I still have connection to the internet thru the server, and I can successfully ping it, but no longer have access to the shares.

I've search the MS knowledge base and the web, but can find no answers.

Can anybody figure out what would cause this workstation to disconnect from the domain after about a minute?

Thanks in advance!

A:XP workstation disconnects from domain

Via a wireless router? have you checked the log in the router? find the log and select loggin only connections for a short time.
Next signal strength. If it dips down to two bars, sometimes they will disconnect. Attempt to move it and connect via cable and see if this doesn't occur. That will determine if it is wireless issue.

Unfortunately, we still have a win98 workstation. I am having trouble configuring it to log on to our 2kserver domain. I have taken the following steps so far -

1. Installed dsclient.exe from the 2kserver OS disk
2. Started the WINS service on the 2kserver
3. Configured the win98 workstation to use WINS & enabled netBIOS over TCP/IP
4. Configured the win98 workstations 'Client for Microsoft Networks' properties to log on to a Windows NT domain and specified the domain name (beachbros).
5. Created an object in AD for the computer

On entering the username and password, an error message is displayed - 'no domain server was available to validate your password.........'

I am hoping somebody will be able to provide me with a checklist of the config changes required both on the 2kserver and the win98 workstation. I would be very grateful as I don't have much experience with win98.

Kind regards

I have't been able to find anything on this error and it is a first for me.
I am attempting to rename an XP workstation on My Network. When I go through the steps logged in as the Domain Admin, I end up with an error message that reads:

Your computer could not be joined to the domain because the following error has occurred:
Multiple connections to a server or shared resource by the same user, using more than one name, are not allowed. Disconnect all previous connections to the server or shared resource and try again.

I of course have re-booted the workstation several times and even re-booted the server. I don't see an open share for the PC or the Admin account in "open Sessions" on the server.

I am stumped at this point. Any input would be greatly appreciated.
TIA for any help in this matter.

I have been tasked with the job allowing a specific set of users to log on certain workstations. For example, only accounting users will have access to the workstations in the accounting department. They will not be able to use workstations in
other departments and other department users  will not be able to use the accounting department workstations. I am manually testing a few workstations.

What I have done so far:
Administrators Group
In the administrators group: I have Domain Admins and the Administrator account (I have to remove local admin rights for our users)
Users Group
In the users group: I currently have Authenticated users and interactive users. 

I want to remove authenticated users and add the accounting group, system, and domain admins.
Is this ok to do? If I should not remove authenticated users, I need to explain why and document.  Thank you.

So i'm in a rut here, why are the Pcs coming back up with the same Trust message when we already manually fixed them last week....

A:trust relationship bet. this workstation & the primary domain failed

A client had the same problem; here is what we did to fix it.

Step 1: Make sure the Date/Time/Time Zone are correct on all DC's. Connect to the internet and update the time.
Step 2: Get and take all Microsoft Updates. Reboot as required. Do one DC at a time.
Step 3: Shutdown (i.e. power off) all but one DC. Wait about 5 minutes and then shutdown the Last DC.
Step 4: Wait about 5 minutes and then turn ON the Last DC that was turned off.
Step 5: Wait about 5 minutes and then turn on all remaining DCs.
Step 6: Wait 30 minutes and then unjoin and reboot any computer that was not working. Set the Time/Date/Time Zone and rejoin it to the domain.

The above should correct the problem and prevent other machines from dis-joining.

If your going to use this as a "server" if you have 10 computers your on the cusp of having network problems because Windows XP pro only allows for 10 connections.

Another thought if its a server you may want to look at some kind of backup solution unless your going to use the DVD burner for that.

I am trying to help out a small law office who is planning to upgrade to xp. I'd planned to write instructions for them for creating their start-up disks. One question I was asked (and couldn't answer) was whether each workstation needed it's own, or if they could just create one boot disk on one workstation and keep it in the safe for all to use.

Does anyone know? Thanks!

if its the same win xp pro cd (same serial) then it should work with all of them. but it also wouldnt hurt to make discs for all of them.

I know that network connectivity is not the issue; I need to make it possible for users to access the domain from that computer as quickly as possible to avoid losing profit for the company. I also do not want to create any issues for a third-party application that identifies computers by SID. What should I do?

I have ideas, but I don't know if any will actually fix the problem. PLEASE HELP.

-Rename the computer and create a new computer account with the new name in ADUC
-Reset the computer account in ADUC, move the computer to a workgroup and then rejoin it to the domain

I'm thinking about buying this to run on my second harddrive. First, Is this a good windows version? Is it comparable to 2000? Is it better than Me? And finally is it worth 15 bucks? Any help with these questions would be great!!!! Thanks for your input!

A:Windows NT Workstation

If you have windows 2000 running on your system, then I personally would not purchase and install windows NT 4.0 unless you want to take a look at it and learn something about it.

It is possible that if your hardware is too new, then you may have problems finding drivers for it. Also NT does not have USB support.

You cannot compare NT to ME they fit different purposes - business vs home.
The righ comparison would be win95 or NT...( but still fit different purposes)

If you would like to upgrade the OS and find something better then ME, then get XP Home.

If you are using VMWare Workstation with Windows 8.1 you will have to reinstall it. I attempted a repair first but that didn't work so I removed and reinstalled, and now all is working just fine. VMWare player worked without having to do a reinstall. . . good luck.

A:Windows 8.1 and VMWare Workstation

I did an uninstall/reinstall of VMWare Player 5.0.2 after upgrading Windows 8 to 8.1.
VMWare and the VMs ran OK but the Windows upgrade messed up the virtual network adapters.

The upgrade to Windows 8.1 also reset many of the preferences in my local user account, including such things as File Explorer settings, RDC default folder, Send To items, etc.
Overall relatively painless, but probably a bit confusing and frustrating for anyone non-technical, as once again the upgrade attempts to force you into creating a new online user account.

I run almost everything in VMs though, the only software installed on the Windows 8.x host is MS Office HS 2007, VMWare, and WinZip. So I wasn't expecting too much difficulty with the upgrade.

So far I do like the upgrade changes though...

Hi All,

I'm having an issue here at work with the laptops used by workers to take out of the office. As far as I remember, windows has cached the logins for all users on the laptop so long as they have logged into the domain while connected to the network at least once.

It appears that now, windows is only remembering the most recent login - all other users will receive a "There are no logon servers available to service the logon request"

If anyone has any ideas it would be greatly appreciated.

A:Windows 7 only caches one Login when disconnected from network/domain

By default all Windows computers should store 10 cached logins. Please check and possible change the value to a higher one and test to see if the issue is resolved -

If you have many machines then you may wish to push any changes that you make through a startup script using group policy

Hope this helps,

Hello All,
I wasn't sure wther to post in the vista forum or the NT workstation forum but as the current OS I am using is Vista I will post in this.
I was wondering if it was possible to dual boot Windows NT 4.0 Workstation with Windows Vista (Windows Vista being the current OS, which is one of the problems as it blocks me running setup). I tried running setup in safe mode which it let me do, it then copied files needed to install to the hard drive, and when it restarted nothing came up and vista booted as normal.

Any Ideas, or is it not even possible and am I wasting my time LOL.

Thanks :)

A:Dual Booting Windows NT 4.0 Workstation...

Hello luke,

Not sure that would be worth the time or effort.

As the system is running Vista now probably isn't gonna run with NT4. Different hardware

requirements and not gonna find the drivers.

You can't run the install from within Windows. You would need to boot to the cd to run

the setup process. Depending on the disk that you have you will need the setup floppies

Also earlier version of windows will need to be installed first and then later version .

So IMO this would be a waste of time to even attempt. Not saying that it will even work.

Just my thoughts on it.

Hi, a workstation on our domain running windows 7 64 bit downloaded updates from microsoft. There was about a hundred of them. Since they installed the machine won't connect to the network shares. It can access the internet easily enough.
The Workstation Service won't start. It comes up with an error 1068: The dependancy service or group failed to start.
I used System restore to go back before the updates and everything worked again. Installed the updates and the problem re-appears.
I have 2 wireless network adaptors so I disabled one. I'm no expert at this sort of thing and any help would be appreciated.

A:Workstation services won't start Windows 7

You'll probably want to find update causing that. Do not install all of them at once, go in "packs" of 10 (for example) so you will be able to narrow down issue to 10 updates and then find one in fault. Also disregard optional updates for now.

A customer brought this problem to me, and I've never really dealt with SCSI before. This is an HP Workstation, dual processor capable, SCSI workstation. 2 18 Gb RAID-0. THey were installing XP servie pack 2, and someone rebooted it right in the middle. So now its in a constant loop whenever it loads Windows. They need the information off the drives, and I've tried BertPE, ClusterKnoppix, and even ERDCommander 2005 to see if I can access the drives. None of them can do it. The hardware is fine, I just need a way to get the information off the RAID drives. Help anyone? I'm going to try to install XP on a IDE drive, and use it as the master drive, see if I can get the information that way. If anyone has any other ideas, I'm open to suggestions. Thanks!

It might be more of a issue with whether the BIOS on the computer will support it.

Before NT starts, does it show up?
Try going into your CMOS and make sure it is correctly detected by your computer.

If this doesn't work, you might check to see if there is a flash update for your BIOS to support such a large drive.

Dear HP experts,Thank you for your time I need an advice to istall windows 7 Ultimate x64 on HP z420 workstation . I have tried alot but an error of ((No device driver were found)) is always shown.Just like the attached picture.Things i have do- changing sata mode from RAID+AHCI to IDE ......which is my only options-changing IDE sata mode from compatable to enhance- disabling EFI boot Sources-disabling legacy boot sources.all these steps lead me to one way, which is no device driver were found. in my best move the installing continue but without a hard drive shown to format or delete. Any AdviceThanks

View Solution.

A:Z420 Workstation troubleshooting in Install Windows

If you have more than 1 disk in your system, and you have RAID+AHCI set, then you likely need to jump into the raid controller BIOS at boot time (by pressing "CTRL C" if i recall correctly) and define a virtual disk or VD (which can wipe existing data so be warned). Then when windows install loads, you will see the virtual disk that you have create earlier and can thus select this VD for the install to continue. This assumes the install media has the (chipset) raid drivers which i think is the case. If the install disk does not have the required (chipset) raid drivers, then you may need to place them on a usb drive and point the install to it using F8, at which point you will see your VD and can continue with the install. If it all sounds like too much, you can remove all but one HDD and then RAID function will not be relevant as it will fall back to simple AHCI. If you still don't see the lone HDD, try and add the chipset drivers using the F8 method. I had similar issues a while ago on my Z210 and solved it by using default BIOS firmware settings, then created a VD and lastly placed Intels RST driver, specifically the F8 driver on a USB and during the Windows install process pressed F* and pointed to the USB drive where the driver was seen and loaded at which time my VD was visable so all could continue.

VMware workstation is at version 12.1 and can be installed Windows 10,8,or 7 64 bit only, They stopped making 32 bit versions of VMware Workstation at 10.1 and that can be installed on Windows 10,8,or 7 32 bit computers.

Yes you can run almost any version of Windows on it and also most versions of Linux, I think it is even possible to run Android 86 but I'm not sure I haven't tried Android yet

I am trying to install Windows 7 on a HP Z240 SFF workstation but when I boot from the Windows 7 USB media, it does not show the HDD even though it is connected.  it would be great if someone could help me out with this issue. Thanks in advance.

A:Unable to Install windows 7 on HP Z240 SFF Workstation

Hello matt_william,  If you are using a retail version of Windows 7 Operating System. You may have to install the Intel Rapid Storage Technology driver while installing the OS. On the HDD partition windows, you will get LOAD DRIVER option, you have to install Intel Rapid Storage Technology driver.   Please find below link to download Intel Rapid Storage Technology driver. NOTE: THIS ACTIVITY NEED TO BE PERFORMED ON ANOTHER UNIT.   TO USE THE INTEL RAPID STORAGE TECHNOLOGY DRIVER DURING A NEW OPERATING SYSTEM INSTALLATION: 1. Download the file by clicking the "Download" or "Obtain Software" button and saving the file to a folder on your hard drive (make a note of the folder where the downloaded file is saved). 2. Double-click the downloaded file and follow the on-screen instructions. 3. Navigate to C:\SWSETUP\SP73487 and unzip "" to a USB key for a 64-bit installation. 4. Use the newly created driver installation media during operating system setup to install the drivers.  Once you copy the driver on another USB media, connect it with unit on which you are trying to install OS.  Click on Load Driver and navigate to USB and install the driver. Once the installation is complete, You will be able to access HDD and will be able to install OS.  I hope that answers your question.  I am an HP employee, the opinions expressed here are my personal opinions, not of HP. Make it easier for other people to find solutions, by marking my answer ?Accept as Solution? if it solves your problem. ***Click on "Thumbs up" button to the left side of my post to acknowledge the post ***

All I want to do is have two Admin level access passwords into Windows xp & vista.
The only level of control difference being the inability to change each other passwords.
Otherwise, each user gets exactly the same priveliges, outlook accounts, desktop network, performance, security and programme settings. If one user changes something , it shows up when the other user logs in.
Can somebody please tell me how to do this?

A:Synchronised windows workstation user accounts

Hi there

If you want you useraccounts to have administrators privileges on your workstations, then they can do anything.

If you want your users to shraed te same desktop and applkications settings then you can have them to share the same user profile.
There are ways to do this in a domain environment (roaming profiles / mandatory profiles) but I don't know if that can be done without a domain.

Try look at an application like this -

This might be helpful in this case.

Hi I have a bit of a dilemma...

i have this oooold desktop whose CPU died during a power surge (i think), and i have replaced it with an equally ooold CPU which a friend gave me, and i think this replacement computer used to run on windows NT workstation 4.0.

when i plugged this replacement computer into my original monitor, it just started searching for a boot disk in drive A:

my friend has no boot disk or backups of this computer (it has been sitting in his garage for god knows how long)

i did find boot disks available for download on the internet for windows NT workstation 4.0 and windows 98SE

and i do have the backup CD's for a laptop which runs on win98SE- so i was wondering if i downloaded one of the boot disks, would i be able 2 "recover" my system with my laptop's windows software?

A:book disks for windows NT workstation 4.0, win98SE

If you want to recover your data, I suggest Knoppix. It is a Linux distro, and it can recognize NTFS as well as FAT.

Hope this help,

Hi Everyone,

I am currently using a Windows 7 (x64) computer on a Domain. The Domain Controller is a Windows 2008 R2 computer. I have Administrator access to the Windows Server as a result I can alter any settings that I see fit.

Recently a number of staff members have been logging onto my Windows 7 computer without my consent.

I would like to limit access to my computer so that only my Domain Account can logon. Ideally this will mean only allowing my personal Domain Account access, and by extension prevent the Domain Administrator from logging on as well. I am not the only staff member with Domain Administrator privileges, and I ultimately want to make my computer inaccessible to all staff with the exception of myself (naturally).

Any suggestions here will be greatly appreciated.

Kind Regards,

I have been using VMware Workstation with various OS's for a while and think it's great. However with my Windows 10 x64 TP guest, even though I installed VM tools - it's almost like VM tools isn't running. I can't drag and drop files from host to VM desktop, and although USB flash drives say connected, they don't appear in file explorer.

I installed 10 as an 8 VM, if you get my drift, so it's either me doing something stupid or 10 being a bit too new for full Workstation 10 functionality. Have uninstalled/reinstalled VM tools. Any suggestions welcome.

A:Can't drag and drop to Windows 10 guest on VM Workstation

thanks in advance

A:how to enable the usb device both windows and VMware workstation environment?

The vmware virtual pc is treated as a second computer,
so it locks in the drive when activated.
You would need to share the drive and access over the network
to use it from windows.

I thought I would start a (impartial) discussion here as it would help me with it terms of how I might configure a new Windows 8 laptop.
Ok, VMWare Worstation 9 was released on the 23rd August. As a freelance consultant I want to configure Windows 8 Pro to run multiple server virtual farms (AD, SharePoint, exchange etc) . Since I want this to all be hosted on a reasonably high spec laptop so i7 > 16 GB DDR3 etc. I wondered if anyone had any thoughts on, or planning to evaluate this type of scenario, on either Client hyper-v or VMWorkstation 9

PerformanceBattery drain -Easy of creating snapshots of vm clonesUSB 3 support Ease of setting up a virtual networks of one or more servers and also internet connectivity testing metro apps in Windows 8 vms ability to move the the VMs in to a cloud service and vica versa
Let the debate begin


A:Windows 8 Client Hyper-v verses VMWare Workstation 9

Well, first and foremost, Hyper-V is going to be included for free, which VMWare Workstation 9.x currently is a $249.00 product.

I'm a VMWare user, but I use the enterprise products at work, am very familiar with how they work and have more of a need to keep things consistent. VMware has always been the better product for me as I often virtualize more Linux boxes than anything else and MS support of Linux clients as a VM has never been that good.

I have a license for VMWare Workstation 8.x, and am unsure yet if I will pony up the $119 for the upgrade. The feature set didn't seem like it was going to really be that advantageous for me. So, my experience on Workstation 9.x might continue to be lacking.

To me, it seems like you want to run MS apps, and you get Hyper-V for free. I would really start there and see if you have concerns. Then consider the cost and feature set of VMWare Workstation.

Deduplication but I need to read more http msdn microsoft com en-us library windows desktop hh v vs aspx What I have learned though is that yes you can convert Windows Server to a Workstation but you will encounter lots and lots of problems Not relevant here but I can list them if you wish What I need Windows Server 2012: Use as Workstation also? --- ReFS vs NTFS? to know is how do I converted all my many TB's to ReFS If I dump Win for Win Blue I know Win will read my NTFS but how can I convert them to ReFS Another final question What do you guys think about Windows Blue I hear it's much faster than my Win bit Ultimate I don't like slow

A:Windows Server 2012: Use as Workstation also? --- ReFS vs NTFS?

Based on what I read on link #2, only the server version of Windows 8 supports formatting to ReFS file system so I think you must use Windows Server 2012 as a file server instead of 8 or Blue. Also, based on link #2, neither Windows 8 or server 2012 can even boot on a ReFS file system. They can only boot with NTFS. However, with Server 2012, you can probably use disk management to convert all your HDDs to ReFS except the HDD where Server 2012 is installed (not sure if this is true since this is my first time learning about this information, and I've been using Server 2012 as a VM for Metro Apps since its launch).

OK, I have googled and googled but I cannot find any succesfull solution for my problem.
Actually, I found one solution but it doesn't work with Windows Server 2008.

My audio device does not work, when I try to activate it it says "The Audio Service is Not Running."

I started the audio service, and it says: "The Dependency or local group failed to start"

After a bit of research, I discovered that you have to start the dependency, Windows Audio Endpoint Builder. (I checked all the other dependencies, they are started.) When I try to start this, the error comes up:
"Error 0x80070002: System cannot find the file specified."

How can I start the audio?
This is necessary to use my Server 2008.



A:Solved: Windows Server 2008 Workstation Audio Service

I have discovered a solution for myself!
I can't find the original page, but this worked for me.
I almost cried when hearing my system sounds.

For future reference:

1. Run cmd
2. Navigate into

3. Look at the DependOnService entry
4. Right click, edit, and remove all values except RpcSs
5. Restart, and cry with joy.

I believe this works on other Vista versions also.

Or, if you're afraid that you might mess something up, try this registry entry.
Save, right click and press "Modify".

(I am not sure if that will work, if it doesn't, try the first method.)

A:Experience Installing Windows 10 on M6600 Precision Mobile Workstation

Day two, things going smoothly with Win 10 on the M6600. 
Got around the lack of an HP Printer Driver by using Google Cloud Print, which let's me install a Google driver in Windows 10 and then print to the cloud, and from there, it communicates via internet to my HP Printer which on my local wireless network, using HP's EPrint which is compatible with Google Cloud Print. (Had to turn on Web Services on the printer and register the printer with HP Eprint.)
My nVidia driver for graphics was installed by Win 10 automatically, but that did not install the nVidia app in control panel, so I downloaded a Windows 10 version of my nVidia driver for my Quadro 3000M display adapter, and that installed fine and is working as expected. Now I have the nVidia program to tweak adjustments.

Before I did a clean Windows 7 install and update to SP1 everything worked fine, so this problem is new.

I'm using VMware Workstation and I can't get the VM to grab my mouse input when I click on the window or press ctrl+g. If I manually add the mouse or keyboard as a device to the VM it works fine but not if I click on the VM window (which is what i really need). This started after I formatted my computer and re-installed Windows 7 with SP1 updates so it might be the SP1 updates which broke it..

I'm running Ubuntu inside Windows 7.

Any ideas?
