Users share from one computer access denied sbs 2003

One users share \\server\users\username is not accessable from one laptop within a sbs 2003 domain, user is getting access denied, when trying to map or connect to his drive. all security permissions are the same as the other users.
He cannnot even browse to say: \\server\users folder before getting access denied.
His computer is windows 7 pro laptop; HP probook 4520s.
If he connects to the terminal server within same domain he can access the same drive ok. which says to me an issue with the windows 7 machine.  but WHAT!?

Hi,
Have you enabled browsing the network on the computer?
Is there any antivirus/firewall (even windows firewall)? (if yes deactivate them and try again)
finally review your permissions

Have you turned on Network Discovery on the Windows 7 machine?

yes network discovery is turned on.
firewall on or off, same thing, as the user can access other drives from the server just not his own.

fixed. i reinstalled windows 7 and then i was able to join domain. not sure why I had to goto this extreme.
also what helped was adding the dns of the server directly into the dns for this computer when adding to domain then removing that entry after the computer was joined.
