Unplug the ethernet cable and or turn off the Wireless switch and try to login.  Most likely there is a connectivity issue with the computer. Or it has lost it's trust with the Server.  Disconnecting it from the network will force it to use cached credentials then you can figure out what has gone wrong with it from there.

Ok, unplugged and tried again, same story.

There are currently no logon servers available to service your request.

My only thought at this point is to log in as the administrator.  Backup the User accounts and all their data.  Then remove it from the domain and rejoin it to the domain.

You may try User Profile Wizard to rejoin it to the domain it may be able to recover the user profiles in their entirety.

Good Luck HTH.

Could not get it to work. Had to Re-install windows and rejoin the domain.
