Domain Password Problems

Specs: Microsoft Windows XP Pro SP3, AMD Sempron 3200+ 1.80 GHz, 448MB RAM
This computer is an office computer connected to a Windows 2003 domain controller. It has worked fine on the domain for about a year now and I am just starting to have trouble with it. Today when I went to log on it did not accept my domain password. Now normally that would not be a problem if I forgot the password as I am the Computer Systems Analyst and can reset the password, but I logged onto the server using the same credentials and it worked without a problem. I can log onto the local machine as the local administrator without a problem. This password has also not been changed in over 6 months so it can't just be a case of the passwords being out of sync. If anyone has any ideas as to what could be causing this I would appreciate it, and if any more information is needed just let me know.

Try this: (in the local workstation Administrator account)

Start > Run > chkdsk /r > ok > Y > Restart

Allow CheckDisk to Check and possibly Fix any issues on next restart
Then try logging into the domain again

My guess is that the computer client account is corrupt. Remove the client from the Domain, putting it into a workgroup (doesn't matter what you call it.) Reboot, log in locally, add the client back to the Domain, then reboot again.

You should be able to then login with your Domain User Account.
