when I ping a particular computer name, the reply comes back with the wrong IP ##.

I already done the following:

1. rejoined local workgroup
2. rejoined domain
3. deleted computer name from server
4. delete IP from DHCP

this is only happening to a particular computer.

Well, depending on what OS you are running:

It could be either a DNS or a netbios error. Check your DNS to make sure that it is pointing to the correct IP of the desired machine.

Hope that helps

Does this happen when pinging that machine from any pc or just from a particular pc?
Have you checked the hosts file on the pc's?
