Things that keep computers from joining domain

I know you've tried everything, but you'll have to try things again to be successful.
The Server's DNS has to be itself. The Server's DNS and the workstation's DNS should be identical--both should be the Server's IP! It isn't that way in your question.
0. Ping the server from the workstation. Ping the workstation from the domain controller.
1. Make sure the computer's name isn't already listed in AD Users and Computers. If it is there, use a different name or delete it from the AD's list.
2. Try making the Domain Controller server the DHCP server as well and activate it with AD.
3. Make sure there's no second DNS on the workstation.
4. Cut and paste the domain name in the workstation. Seriously. At least type it one letter at a time.
5. Don't use the Network ID button. Use the Change button.
6. Make sure the domain name in the MORE area under the Change button link is correct or make sure to check the Change DNS suffix with domain change box.
7. Check the domain name again. Seriously.
8. Don't say you've already done these. It's not working, right? Do it again. Carefully.

Dear Sir
Am not a expert.
I did the same more but again the same message." An attempt to resolve the DNS name of the domain controller in the domain has failed. Please verify this client is configured to reach a DNS server that can resolve DNS names in the target domain"

Can you please advise what IP confg I want to do it in win7pc?

If you ping the dns name of the DC, what do you get as a response?
Which device is the DHCP server; the router or the DC? if the router make sure to add the DC as a DNS server, if the router, double check the DNS server settings.
If you could cut and past an ipconfig /all from the workstation that would help identify the issue as well.

For some reason it wont let me edit my previous response. The third line:
"if the router double..."
should be "if the DC / Server , double check..."
