What Internet Browser are you using?
Try Using IE9

If you already ysed IE9 try using FireFox and see if there is a difference

If still no good, have the user log out of the machine
Log back onto the same machine as a different user
Now once logged on, try accessing OWA

If it works here the issue is going to be related to the users profile

So same user can work okay on new computer

Id say its likley related to their Windows Profile and could possibly be corrupt

Rather than wasting time on a Lengthy Format/re-image of the PC

SImply log onto the Machine as local or Domain Admin

Find the users User Profile
Rename it to USERNAMEOLD

Log off the machine
Have the user log back onto their machine, and resetup their user profile

I think you may find this will resolve the issue for the user

If for some reason it doesnt, yeah okay re-format/re-image

What is the difference between the formatted PCs and the old ones?
Maybe a change in the network like dns server that is set by dhcp or any security policy or maybe even a windows update or at the server side may some certificate or access/network/security policy corrupted or wrongly set...

Here is a possible way to understand whats going on:

Download TcpView from here
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb897437.aspx

This utility shows all network conection online

Than run it on server.

Verify the IP Address of the client (The ip that is being used when connecting to the server remotely)

Than start owa from the client and look at the server if you can see the connection starting.

Than look if the connection is terminated, hangs or any other data you can see like which process is being uesd with this connection, maybe this will give you a clue of how solve it.

it can also be a problem of IIS server.

What kind of server is it?

SBS 2003/8/11 or exchange 2007/2010?

You can try to run the "Fix my network" wizard in case you have SBS server...

Regards
Ori
