Users home share inaccessible but other servers and drive letters are accessible. Users home share IS accessible when logging in at other computers.

I have a user who lost access to his H drive which is his home directory on server1. The drive gets mapped at login but when I click on it a window pops up and says "H:\ is not accessible. Access is denied." If I go to tools, map network drive, I get a similar message regardless of which letter I choose. Other drive letters are getting mapped to two other servers and are accessible. I can login as this user from other computers and the H drive is accessible. This is a Dell laptop which also has a wireless NIC. On a couple of occasions I was able to unplug the patch cable from the docking station and plug it directly into the laptop and have the H drive accessible for a few minutes. I have swapped out the patch cable. I have gone into Disk Management to verify no USB devices are trying to take the H drive. I created a new share on the server1 with a different folder name and different share name, and still get access denied. The laptop OS is WinXP Pro, all the servers are Winodws 2003. Help!
