On the remote computers RDP settings there is an option to allow all connections from computers running any version of RDP (Less secure).

set to that and try again.

Start>Right-Click Computer, Properties. Select Remote Desktop Settings on left side then you can see the options that Nedramsay is speaking of.

If they are greyed out then there is a GPO that has been configured for RDP. If that is the case then perhaps the TCP/IP settings are off somehow on that laptop since all other machines on the Domain can connect to it.

Start>Type CMD, type ipconfig /flushdns, hit enter.
type ipconfig /registerdns

See if that works for you.

To nedramsay: It's already set to "Less Secure"

To TechOps07: There is no GPO. Tried flushdns. Did not work.
