Windows Password problems in win98

By Thabiso ·
good day ppl

help me out here. tried to change the micrososft networking password and i was unable to do just that.i went to staart-settings-controll panel-password-change windows password
i got this error msg "Unable to change the password for Microsoft Networking because of the following error.This operation cannot be perfomed to your computer"

got to change it though . i went to our intranet and change it there

i was hoping u could help me with this regard and also i almost forgot this one.our networked computers get their IPs through a dhcp and all that.something strange happened today. one user complained that hshe could not access the network . i went t o the site concerned.after she has put her user name and password ,thenclicks OK and she gets this error msg "NO DOMAIN WAS AVAILABLKE TO VALIDATE YOUR PASSOWRD.......". i then clicked OK and pinged the gateway and other outside gateways within our network and pinged a OK.opened internet and went through and also e-mail is working fine.

i was thinking of re-installing the network card or the TCP/IP stack, but i figured out that u guys can come up with a better idea.

TA in advance

First delete the *.pwl file on the windows 98 machine then reboot and type in the new password you want. Now if this is also the same password that is used to authenticate domain access, then you need to change the users password to match that of the one you are replacing.

Email me for answers to the network issue.

This doesn't sound like it a password issue. There are a couple of reasons this might happen that i have ran into. Sometimes when there are 2 computers with the same name then they won't be able to log on to the network. Another thing is that they may have lost there sid. In any case i would log on to the machine unjoin the domain, change the computername to something different. You could try to add an a to the end of the name. Then join back up to the domain. You might try to delete the username.pwl first.
