Win XP Cannot login to domain

One of my user gets this error message when he tries to login" Windows cannot connect to the domain, either because the domain controller is down or otherwise unavailable, or because your computer account was not found. Please try again later or contact your system administrator"

I rejoined the computer again on active directory, and we still getting the same error. Any solution for this guys?

TCP ip settings on the server computer? i cant log in to the client pc, thats where i am getting the error from.

its SBS
THIS IS WHAT THE LOGS SAY

The session setup from computer 'HOTADUMMY' failed because the security database does not contain a trust account 'HOTADUMMY$' referenced by the specified computer.  

USER ACTION  
If this is the first occurrence of this event for the specified computer and account, this may be a transient issue that doesn't require any action at this time. Otherwise, the following steps may be taken to resolve this problem:  

If 'HOTADUMMY$' is a legitimate machine account for the computer 'HOTADUMMY', then 'HOTADUMMY' should be rejoined to the domain.  

If 'HOTADUMMY$' is a legitimate interdomain trust account, then the trust should be recreated.  

Otherwise, assuming that 'HOTADUMMY$' is not a legitimate account, the following action should be taken on 'HOTADUMMY':  

If 'HOTADUMMY' is a Domain Controller, then the trust associated with 'HOTADUMMY$' should be deleted.  

If 'HOTADUMMY' is not a Domain Controller, it should be disjoined from the domain.
