I have a Windows XP laptop connected to a domain. When it got disconnected, it uses the cached login details and login as a workgroup member rather than as a domain member. Also, I am unable to select the domain name in the login window since the option is not available. How do I enable the domain selection option back in the login window?

To login on a domain you need to first make your computer as a workgroup computer. To make your computer a part of work group you can follow these steps. You need to go to the computer properties and then you can go to the computer name and then you need to make your computer a part of a computer domain.
