Hello everybody!

I have a problem with a laptop on a company domain, when the user logs in their documents do not appear, they can log into other computers and everything is fine and other people can log into her laptop fine, the problem only occurs when she logs onto her laptop.

Any body any ideas?

fully updated Win xp pro

Thanks in advance.

Check your eventviewer for any errors first of all...

Is the laptop logging onto the domain or just locally?

ok, so it's not taking the roaming profile... Do check the logs.

Is there a firewall running on the laptop? Check your IP addressing as well...

From a command prompt, run nslookup

nolookup returned expected results and firewall is just windows own

The event logs on the other hand shed lots of light! always the last place I look im not sure why:

Description: Windows cannot query for the list of Group Policy objects. A message that describes the reason for this was previously logged by the policy engine. For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp.

and

Have you changed the admin password lately? Or the pass on the account creator if you use one??? When was the last time you used this laptop on the domain?

You may want to remove and re-add to your domain.

erm im not so sure, what would be the best way to remove and re-add to the domain? totally client side or by deleting the computer off the server (windows 2003) and then adding the client back on to the domain?

You shouldn't need to delete the account from the server... just do it on the client side through system.

Check the link above first.

looked at the link you gave me but none of the error messages are familiar with problems on this computer, also before removing and re-adding the computer to the domain i thought i would logon as the computers local admin to check the password but i dont have the correct password, and if i remember rightly i will need this to re-add the computer to the domain?

I changed the local admin password from the server and removed the client computer from the domain and placed it back into the domain, this hasnt solved the problem. :confused:
