At what point does the computer lock up?  Does it successfully boot to the login screen? Can you log in before it locks up?  Please let us know at what stage of the boot it locks up.

Since you can't access the share and are having problems logging on, you may have a missing DNS record. Run a DCdiag and look for FRS, DNS and Netlogon problems. If so, type DCdiag /fix:DNS and see if that resolves your issues.
