Trouble accessing domain

jtankard
We had a power outage about 3 weeks ago. Since then my XP Pro SP3 units have had difficulty locating the domain. I try to log into them with my u/n & password and I get messages saying that the domain is unavailable. Some I have corrected with last known good configuration, others I can use the network ID wizard. Some I've had to change to a workgroup then back to the domain. However a couple of these seem to revert after a restart or a shutdown and I have to keep repeating the procedure. Of course these units are the ones used by my problem children (one managed to break both front USB ports so now her tower is backwards under her desk so she can access the rear ports!) Is there anything else I can try before wiping and would that even work?
