Picture of the system could not log you on. make sure your user name and domain are correct, then type your password again.
you have to be connected to the network, this happened to me before when the network cable came unplugged and someone else logged in before me.
OORRR if this is your computer you connected it to work or school network and it started doing this then you need to take it to the IT department to remove this, this happened when i was a young warthog and was enrolled in college, someone plugged their personal computer into the network and it loaded all the log on stuff.
Nothing you can do. Considering you don't know the user name or password this is either not your laptops or you just purchased it used. If you just purchased it used then contact the person or place you got it from and ask about the log in. If they don't know they there is a chance you have stolen merchandise.

If this is a lag it purchase or you have forgotten your log in and password then the best you can do is wipe the HDD and reinstall windows.

Overall this sounds a bit fishy. If everything is on the up and up you would have a way of getting the log in or having previous owner remove the need to log into the laptop. This could be a corporate laptop seeing as how its running XP pro and is looking for a domain. So it's wanting to be on a corporate network.
+1!!! Sounds VERY fishy!

BTW... if you think you do have the right passwords, it's possible it needs to connect to the domain in order to log you in. (Connect it to the right network)

Why don't you have the passwords?

If it is stolen the original owner may be willing to give a reward for its return. Usually the data that is on it is more important than the hardware.
