The computer's relationship with the domain has been reset, usually because the computer's password doesn't match the password for it in AD.

 

To fix this, you can log onto the computer as a local admin and join the computer to a workgroup, removing it from the domain. Then reboot and log in again as the local admin.

 

You can then either rejoin the computer to the domain with domain-level admin credentials. Or you can delete the computer account from AD, recreate it, replicate the change across the domain, and then rejoin the computer to the domain.

That should reset the computer's password, which should fix it.

The only password he can change is his user password. Someone with access to AD may need to reset his user password.

However, that error message indicates the computer password isn't synced. If his user password were incorrect, he wouldn't be able to log in at all.

If you delete the computer account, you will have to rejoin it to the domain before he can log in on that computer.

Deleting the computer account in AD won't delete anything he had saved on that computer.
