Is this laptop connected to domain system or used to connected,like your company/business domain ?

Ask Your Own Computer Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Domain system. I have 2 laptops. I don't know why this one is saying log on to HBC-INT.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Can we try logging on thru another domain maybe?
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I was trying to change the administrator options and I somehow wiped out the information need to sign on
Tech Support Specialist: John, Computer Support Specialist replied 2 years ago

So you never seem this HBC-INT name for log in before.

logging on thru another domain wont work but could you please try that and see if it show your local account name,if possible send me a image of that login screen too.

Also was this laptop networked to the other laptop?

Ask Your Own Computer Question
Tech Support Specialist: John, Computer Support Specialist replied 2 years ago

Thank you for the image.

Were you able to access the other laptop using this Asus laptop before?

Also do you know the user name you had before if so enter that in the user name field and that user accounts password ***** try to login.

Ask Your Own Computer Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I have never tried to access the other laptop from the one in question.
I do not remember the user name. I thought it was owner but that is not wirkimg
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
No login servers available
Tech Support Specialist: John, Computer Support Specialist replied 2 years ago

That is strange if this laptop is not connected to a company domain then its not supposed to show that screen unless you tried to connect a domain thinking that will allow you to log in as administrator.

Lets try to boot in safe mode and see if its showing the same login screen.Please do the following to boot in safe mode

Restart the computer then press F8 repeatedly when you see the Asus start-up screen. You need to press F8 before the Windows logo appears then you will get Advance boot Menu on the Advanced Boot Options screen, use the arrow keys to highlight the Safe Mode and then press ENTER.Once you are in safe mode see if there is any change in the login screen.Let me know

Ask Your Own Computer Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
No change
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
when I try to go in with safe mode and command prompt it runs but then does not give me the command box to type in
Tech Support Specialist: John, Computer Support Specialist replied 2 years ago

OK thank you for the update.

When you tried to change administrator options did you anywhere enter HBC-INT or do you know that name?

Ask Your Own Computer Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I do know that name and no I did not
Tech Support Specialist: John, Computer Support Specialist replied 2 years ago

In that case our option is to do a factory restore.This process will erase the files on the laptop hard drive then re-install windows 7,drivers and applications that came with the laptop.Just like out of condition.Do you want to do this process.Let me know

Hello! My name is*****

Let me know if you still require assistance with this issue.

I do the last gentleman could not help
Tech Support Specialist: IT Miro, Computer Scientist replied 2 years ago

OK.

Since you are not able to access a domain account, let's try to access a local account instead.

Do you know the name of a local user account that is created on your computer?

Ask Your Own Computer Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Are u still here?
Tech Support Specialist: IT Miro, Computer Scientist replied 2 years ago

I see you wrote "??".

Upon installing Windows, you need to create a local user account. For example "Administrator". You can then continue to use that local user account or choose to sign in to a domain account instead.

Your computer was set to sign in to a domain called HBC-INT

Since you say you cannot sign in there any more, you can try to sign in to a local account. Such account is not connected to a domain and doesn't require any Internet connection.

However, in order to sign in, you need to know the name of the local user account created on your computer.

That is why I asked you if you knew the name.

Ask Your Own Computer Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I do not know the name
Tech Support Specialist: IT Miro, Computer Scientist replied 2 years ago

In that case, you need to access the Command Prompt so that you can list all created user accounts. However, you cannot do that unless you are logged in. For that reason, you need to use a bootable media in order to access the Command Prompt. One of those bootable media is the Windows 7 disc.

Do you happen to have it?

Ask Your Own Computer Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
No I sure dont
Tech Support Specialist: IT Miro, Computer Scientist replied 2 years ago

Do you have any other bootable media, such as

- Windows 8 / 8.1 disc

- Windows 10 disc

- repair disc

etc

Ask Your Own Computer Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I do not. Sorry
Tech Support Specialist: IT Miro, Computer Scientist replied 2 years ago

You need to have a bootable media in order to solve this problem.

I can provide you the instructions on how to create a Windows 7 repair disc for free. However, you need to use another computer with Internet access and ability to burn a CD.

Is that possible?

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
