This problem may be related to network access. I list some common factors and corresponding troubleshooting steps as below. Please check them one by one and let me know the result.

1> DNS issue

From the problematic PC, please run the following commands and then check if the issue still exists:

1) Can you ping FQDN of the DCs in your networks?
2) Can you ping IP of all the DCs in your networks?
3) Does the DNS configuration point to the correct DNS server?

2.

1). Start -> run -> cmd

2) Type nslookup, and then press Enter; Type set type=all, and then press Enter.

3) Type _ldap._tcp.dc._msdcs.<yourdomainname>, and then press Enter to check the result.

If SRV records could not be resolved successfully, please type 'net stop netlogon' and 'net start netlogon' to regenerate SRV records.

2>. Permission
Ensure you logon DC using the user with domain administrator privilege. If so, please check if you have the proper permission on sysvol files under %systemroot% and inf file under %system root%
