    Verify that your DNS is working.  Do an IPCONFIG /ALL and verify that DNS is pointing to the correct servers.

    This generally means the PC doesn't have access to a DC.. Are you able to log in locally? If so, do you have an IP address / are you on the network?

    Can you ping a domain controller?

    Sometimes this can be casued by a trust issue with the domain controller and the machine in question. I would check DNS first as stated above but the machine might have lost its trust to the domain.

    If this is the case you can use netdom from the DC to re-establish the trust with the machine. If not this way, you can just remove and re-add the computer to the domain.

    hope this helps!

    Disable IPV6 in your NIC properties and then do an ipconfig again..

    First you disable IPv6 then do a telnet on port 3268
    telnet DCFQDN 3268
