It's also possible that the company never officially removed the computer from its domain, to check it out, right click My Computer, select properties, then click the Computer Name Tab, look at the text and see if it says something about Un-Joining or removing from a domain. If it does, there is the problem and you would have to follow the advice posted previously.
Explanation: Domain policy objects can be configured for computers joined to a domain that will enable them to log on to their computer a certain number of times without officially being connected to the company network. Once the system is back on the company net, this counter should reset.
Another thing you can try is if you get the Welcome Screen, hit Ctrl-Alt-Del twice to bring the regular log on screen, see if there is an extra line, with an arrow there, click on it and you would have some options, Local Computer, or domain.
It's just an idea.
The only real problem that I have with being an I.T. Tech is that I can't use the excuse:
"Sorry, I don't do windows."
