Strange Windows XP login problems. Domain name has changed. Please Help

By lisee5 ·
Hi There,

I have been searching the internet for a solid week and cannot find a solution. Looking for someone who can help me.

I have a small network of computer (7) all running XP SP3. My XP Login has changed somehow. Recently 3 of the computers on the network have changed there domain names from TNSER1 to TNSER1 (Windows NT 4). If I click on the name or try to log on locally. The domain changes to just (Windows NT 4) and I can no longer log onto the domain.

After a reboot, I get TNSER1 (Windows NT 4) back again sometimes and can login to domain.

I have join and unjoin the domain, in hopes that would fix the problem. But it has no effect. Can anyone tell me what would be able to change my domain name? The server for the domain is a linux server.

Please help, this is driving me nuts.

Thanks :)
