Hmm....  Verify that in AD the computer has the correct security groups applied

If so...
unplug the network cable.  Login, plug the cable back in and blow away any network settings...

netsh winsock reset
ipconfig /flushdns
arp -d *
ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew

try again

Instead remove the computer of the AD,  Try to reset the computer object/account.

In case you have more than one DC run on a DOS prompt
C:\>gpupdate /force

Then on the computer
1) un-join and restart
2) Rejoin and restart but login with local account
3) Restart and login on the domain, with an AD account without custom group policies.

-hope helps-
First you need to disjoint the PC from domain.

Login to DC open active directory users and computers delete computer object of the disjoint PC.You also need to delete the old computer name assigned to PC.

Open the DNS console delete the host A record and ptr record of the PC.Here also delete both old and new record of the PC.

Wait fot the replication to happen between the DC's if multiple DC exist in the network.Once the done Join the PC to domain.This should fix the issue.thanks

thanks for all the help, but nothing worked. Had to take a drive from our other server and put it in. The drives are mirrored so putting the bad one in the other server, it rebuilt it.  We disconnected the bad server from the network, renamed it with the new drive and changed it's IP.  All is good.
