Windows XP Domain Issue

By pjcannon ·
I have a client with a laptop(used got a "deal" on it, meaning of course no XP or other software cd's) running Windows XP Pro SP2. Went to join it to a windows 2003 domain but the network id is greyed out. If you click change the domain & workgroup boxes are greyed out. You can change the computer name but not the workgroup name or join it to a domain. This is one I have never seen before and have yet to turn up anything on Google or at Microsoft. Any ideas would be appreciated.

Did you uninstall/reinstall Client for Microsoft Networks?

I would even consider rebuilding the tcp/ip protocal stack. You probably already know but the comman is netsh int ip reset (file name). I know this has helped me when I run into erratic problems on the network. However, if that doesn't work, I would also think that some policy or service is disabled. And as has been mentioned, a reinstall of the OS may be the only answer in the end.
