    was the operating system and upgrade or did you install from new?

    if new, then have you joined the machine to the domain?

    When you say old domain, is the no longer active, hence why you can't log in to the domain?

    the installation was fresh installation, I joined the computer  again to the domain and added the username and password to the machine.

    Please make sure your netlogon service is status "started" and startup type "automatic" state.

    On the NIC card dns server setting pointing to your domain server IP Address.
