Once you are done you can remove the computer from the domain then rejoin the computer to the domain to resolve the trust relationship error.

If you unplug the network cable, you should be able to log into the computer with any network account and password that has logged into the machine in the past. If your account is a domain admin, the you can  do what work you need to do (including resetting the local admin password) once you are in.

Keep in mind that if you take this route, you will have to use the users password that they used the last time you logged into it.

If it helps, I had this issue when I (unknowingly) had two computers on the network with the same name.

You can use the tools mention about, and you can also reset the user and password from AD users and group policy object.

As the question refers to the workstation and not the user, it would appear that there's a problem with the computer domain account. I'd be inclined to delete from the DC the computer account that's causing the trouble and create a new one.
