Single workstation not picking up DHCP IP address

Hello,
I have a workstation which is not picking up AN IP address from DHCP.  No other workstations have this issue, statistics on the DHCP server show 66% available ip addresses, and in plugging in a personal workstation which has never been on this network am able to get an ip address assigned.
In summary:
1.  The DHCP server is working properly as it hands out ip addresses to other workstations and laptops when testing on the same cable and port
2. If I set a static IP, it works fine
3. I can ping the DHCP server without issue

Is it a Windows XP on wireless connection? Yes, i Has XP SP3 applied?

Have you ever tested wired connection?

Operating system of the dhcp server?

Have you seen the dhcp server logs looking for the host name or MAC address? launch a command line on the machine and type ipconfig /renew and check the dhcp server logs

Have you checked if the machine has an enforced ip configration from the nic properties?

I have re installed the OS and can verify there is no enforced IP config, no entries in DHCP log. I have a second internal domain on a seperate VLAN and when I connect it to that vlan, it picks up an IP Address fine. Again.. no other workstations have this issue, this is the only one.

I asked about the DHCP server operating system because, for instance, on ws2008 DHCP role there are MAC adress filters.

I had to install a new NIC to get this workstation on the network.

Not a fix just a workaround but unfortunately, did not have time to dive deeper to work on a single workstation.

Ever wondered why you had to use DHCP options (dhcp opt 60, 66 or 67) in order to use PXE? Well, you don't!
Configuring network clients can be a chore, especially if there are a large number of them or a lot of itinerant users.  DHCP dynamically manages this process, much to the relief of users and administrators alike!
