User not getting  trust issue errors,  or any kind of error but not able to connect to domain

I was installing  the AD administrative tool on a users computer.  She was logged into the network when I started working on her computer.  Thecomputer prompted for a restart so I did the restart, logged in.  Tried accessing the AD tool, but received RPC errors.  As i did some more checking i noticed I was no longer connect to the network drives.  I went to the server and I noticed that computer name was not listed under computers.   I may have deleted it  when I was deleting old computer names from the AD

I thought that if your computer was not listed in AD that you would get trust issue errors.  Never got them.  I am still not able to get on.

Should I just assume there is a trust issue and  disjoin the domain?

Thanks.

You won't get trust errors when logging on with a client machine if the computer isn't specifically configured to require DC communication at logon and you attempt to use a user account that has logged in previously.

If you attempt to log in with a user account that has never used that computer before, you will probably get the error you're looking for.

If so, go ahead and rejoin to the domain.

Does the COMPUTER think it's on the domain?  Or in a workgroup?

Also, to overcome login problems temporarily to resolve this, assuming you have logged in on an admin profile at least once, just unplug the network cable.  When the computer realises it can't contact the DC, you will be logged in to the cached profile with cached credentials.  This will give you the ability to proceed further.  Progress depends on what your answer is to the 1st question.

Yes, unjoin and rejoin the domain to re-create the computer account.
