Old DNS Records Causing Conflict After Adding to Domain

I have resolved some DNS issue via another question on EE. I had previously had DNS & DHCP managed by my router not the domain controller. This has now been resolved and the DC is happily managing DNS & DHCP for all devices. This is working very very well.

HOWEVER - I have one client, that while it picks up an IP from the DC it is still holding all of the old IP schema data as well. So, when I try to connect to one of our servers it uses the old IP address not the new one.

So, from this client, I can ping the servers new IP (

However if I ping the hostname it resolves it to ( which is the old IP address.

I have removed the box from the domain, added to a workgroup and deleted all of the domain users settings in doc & settings but when i add it back to the domain it again uses the old dns data...

Any ideas where I should look to resolve this....?
