It's usually caused by a change of password. You can't "get around it", you have to fix it: http://www.petenetlive.com/KB/Artic...

common way to fix this is to join a workgroup and then join the domain again.

Is this a personal laptop you are trying to connect to a domain? If so, you don't have an Active Directory account so it's not going to join. You will need to talk to the IT folks and see if they will let you on.

The trust broken message tells us it was joined to the domain but now has a credentials mismatch. FYI

it has been on the domain yes and just wouldnt log anyone in all nof a sudden, i reset the account on active directory and that seemed to work because i was able to login, but when i switched users to log someone else in, it went back to giving that message, and now reseting the account no longer works.

Perhaps then you will follow my recommendation. You should delete the existing machine account after you have joined a workgroup and before you join the domain.
