Problem med Parallellport på Toshiba Tecra A2

Hade problem med en Toshiba Tecra A2 som när man slog på parallellporten i BIOS och startade Windows fungerade som den skulle men så fort man startade om maskinen så fanns inte parallellporten längre.

Lösning: I BIOS var inställningen för “Device Config” satt till “Setup By OS”. Ställ denna till “All Devices” i stället.

"Logon Failure: Account Currently Disabled" and "System Error 1331" Error Messages

When you try to connect to a server in another domain you get the error messages “Logon Failure: Account Currently Disabled” and “System Error 1331” Error Messages.

This happens if one of the computers have been moved from one domain to anothet. The computer account is the disabled in teh computerd old domain and this is what creates the error.

The solution is to remove the old computer account (marked with a red X) from the old domain.
