Restored laptop, now not recognized as part of domain? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I restored my Dell M4400 that is a work laptop, and now I get an error when I try ot log on and am connected to our corporate network that the domain controller could not be found or that the computer is not part of the domain.  Everyone else can log on, so it seems my computer is no longer part of the domain, even though it thinks it is.

    One thing of note:  my computer crashed on 1/14/10, but I restored from a backup that was made on 12/20/09.  So I am not sure if that made a difference?  Also, I tried running "gpupdate" to update my group policy, but that did not seem to help.

    Any ideas?  Seems like a bit of a flaw in the backup system for computers that are part of a domain.
