I am systems manager over a small PD network, one of the computers is running windows xp and has ran fine on the network untill a few weeks ago. When starting the computer up it ask for the user name and password and when you enter it, it sits for about a minute then says cannot log into network and will not bring up the computer. You can unplug the network cable and after a few attempts can log in, the reconnect the network cable and access the network fine. Any help appreciated. Pulling my hair out. Chief's computer

on NT Based Operating systems When you press F8 at the start of booting.. Look for safemode with Networking..
Also.. The Network Cable could be damaged. I had the same problem happen last Summer on a Windows 2000 Professional Machine.
