Try removing the WinXP client from the domain, joining it to a workgroup, then rejoining it to the domain. Also, try deleting the computer object in AD Users and Computers, then re-create it manually using the same snap-in.

Good luck

1, Check computer name with others computers - if 2 computers will have the same name - their raplace computer password after logon.

2, Check setting for computer password - or disable this function. When computer password isn't corectly changed on local comp. and domain at the same time - then computer cannot acces domain.
