How many domain controllers do you have?

What is the error that he gets when attempting to log in to the computer?

As long as the user belongs to the Domain Users group and that computer is joined to the domain then they should be able to login.  Did you create new user or copy an existing user? Check what groups the user is a member of.

I would double check that he is typing the correct password and maybe even go ahead and reset the password just to be sure. Right click on the new account and go to Reset Password. Have him try again. Make sure you do see his new account in Active Directory

There I'd no activation.  Are you sure your using the correct credentials and that the workstation in question is working properly on the network?  How many DCs do you have - sometimes it can take several minutes for account info entered on one DC to replicate to the other DC's

Try clicking the options button on the login Screen - You may find that it's trying to log into the local machine - not the domain

Or try username@yourdomain.local  and password
