Check your Lan connection:
1. Can the client ping to remote computer?
2. Check firewall or antivirus block remote connection?


checked all of the above and more ... nothing is blocking it
Have you verified that "Enable remote control" is enabled within the Remote Control tab in the user's AD account properties?

Besides that, also verifiy that the user is a member of the Remote Desktop group on your Remote Desktop Server.

If everything else is clear, I would also suggest changing the password (if at all possible) to ensure it's properly updating in your domain.

You might have a cached password that this PC is trying to use in lieu of the actual certificate from the domain controller. Check and delete managed passwords. They can cause problems on a domain. A group policy can be set to prevent users from storing managed or cached passwords.
