windows 7 pro network unauthenticated

I have a Windows 7 Pro laptop on a Windows 2003 server network that has decided to stop authenticating to the network. The laptop has Internet access, gets an IP from the server ( running DHCP and can see the domain controller ) and can print over the network. Mapped network drives, nope.

Not a roaming profile. I thought about deleting and rejoining the domain but I know what a hassle that was in XP and I don't know what that will do to the local profile?

Thanks for feedback and assistance.

If you disjoin and rejoin the network it will keep the existing profiles.

I'm a little new to W7,  what is the easiest way to disjoin and rejoin the domain?

We had the same issue. We removed from and rejoined the laptop with the domain, no change.

We ended up deleting the local user profile as the user had left anyhow. I take from your question that you want to avoid this, but thought I mention it just in case it is an option.
