    Help needed (XP)

    A friend in San Fran has a major system down. the system crashed, she tried to reboot, reloaded XP, rebooted and the system notified her that she could not be logged on due to the following error. "the specified domain does not either exist or could not be contacted. Please try again or consult your system administrator....she is the administrator.....any ideas on the fix would be most appreicated

    This is an unusual error message for a home computer.
    Is it supposed to be part of a network at home, or is it in an office?
    Is it running Windows XP Home, or Professional?

    To add to Stewart's questions, is she getting the usual two or three line Logon window where she has to enter her username and password, and then select either the PCname or a Domain name? Is she selecting the wrong one?
