Unfortunately, that will not work as the SID (Security Identifier) is not the same, even though the user/computer name is the same.  I didnt quite understand whether or not the computer object or the user account object was deleted. However, in any case your best bet will be to restore from an AD backup. Depending on the application that you use to backup AD, your options to restore will change. For example, if you use native Windows backup utility you'd have to go through an authoritative restore process as outlined in this good article http://www.isaacoben.com/2009/07/04/performing-an-authoritative-restore-for-active-directory-deleted-objects-or-containers/
I know applications such as Symantec offer different ways in which to perform the same. So, bottom line, you have to restore the object from a backup set. Or, if you deleted the computer account, and assuming it's not a critical business-line machine, you could disjoin and rejoin the AD domain. This will create another instance of the computer object in AD, which will allow you to login without problems.

Then you'd have to restore the compute object from an AD backupset if you want to continue logging into AD from that computer

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

It is nothing bur the secure channel between Server and the Workstation is broken. You need to unjoin and Rejoin the machine to fix this issue. If you are referring to Windows 7, then disable basic firewall and join machine it to domain.

Hope this helps.

why are you not able to login to that pc? log in on the local computer, not the domain (does the pc not have a local administrator account? - you could change that with "hirens boot cd" for example and activate the admin account)
login with "computername\administrator" and rejoin the domain.

regards

yes, login to the computer using local admin account and rejoin it to domain but remove the computer object in AD before you do so.

Unplug the network cable and turn off the wifi if any

You should now be able to login as a domain user/admin (their credentials remain cached )
