I'm trying to add a new Toshiba laptop to our domain.  It's running Windows 7 Professional.  When I enter the domain name, and admin password, it states an activer directory domain controller for the domain could not be contacted.  

In "view your active networks" it shows our domain name.

This morning I added a Dell Optiplex to the network with no problems.  HELP

try to disable firewall on the laptop, verify IP / DNS settings are correct , try using FQDN as a domain name.
