Check your DNS

On the PC make sure that the NIC settings are pointing to the domain controller for their DNS resolution.

Also verify that the local firewall is turned off.

Then join the domain again.

Network Interface Card.

Open the properties of you network neighborhood. Right click on the network card that yiou see there and select properties.

On the General tab find the TCP\IP protocol in the window. Select it and then hit the properties button.

Now you can change the DNS server address to point to your Domain controller.

Did you seperatly name and then do the joining after a reboot?

Can you add the computer to AD without adding it to the OU first?

Do you have the correct permissions to do this?

When you name the computer you must reboot, then join it to the domain.
If currently part of a domain, you may rename, disjoin it from the domain, reboot, re-join it and reboot again.
