Unable to access a specific share from a specific laptop

I have an strange case of a clean, new Windows 7 laptop that can't access a particular share on a Windows 2008 server.
Everyone has read/write permissions on this particular share folder.
I initially thought it was a permissions issue with the User1's account, but testing with User1's account on another machine allows read/write to the share just fine. The account has local admin rights on the laptop, but not on the domain.
The account is also able to access all other shares on the server perfectly.
On the laptop I found I wasn’t able to access this specific share with a domain administrator account either, so I dropped the machine from the domain and rejoined, yet still got the same result. I've checked that the laptop is in the correct domain computers group.
Windows client under network properties is also enabled.

The error message is:
Windows cannot access <sharename>
You do not have permission to access <sharename>. Contact your network administrator to request access.

Does anyone have any idea what's going on here?

Thanks

Are both machines that you tested everything on running Windows 7?

Please take a look at the Event Viewer logs and look for anything unusual. It might be a good idea to compare the server log when the same user account can access it using one computer vs. the same account being unable to access the share from the new Windows 7 laptop. You probably want to look at the Security log, but it wouldn't hurt to do a quick check of the System log. There's an Excel file that you can download from Microsoft that might help make sense of the Security events:

The next step you'll want to try is to enable auditing of the shared folder:
1) Right click the folder
2) Properties
3) Security tab
4) Advanced
5) Auditing tab
6) Select the users and groups you want to audit and what you want to audit.
7) Save settings

You have isolated the issue down to the computer domain account. And since you are also unable to access the domain the issue must be with the computer domain account. If this
computer is window 7 home then you cannot join it to the domain. You can access the share if there is a username/password set on the share that allows access.
  Good luck

In Calendar, click Open a Shared Calendar.
Type a name in the Name box, or click Name to select a name from the Address Book.
Click OK.
The shared Calendar appears next to any calendar that is already in the view.
