Cannot login to the domain on windows vista machine

i have a machine running windows vista and its joined to a domain. It has worked perfectly for some time now. Just last week i took a break from work and went away for one week. on my return i cannot login to the domain using my user account which has worked for all this time. When i use the Admin account on the same machine, it is able to log on but not mine. i have tried all that i know by resetting the password on the server bu to no avail. Please i need help on this one as i have to complete some tasks by having access to the domain om my computer. thanks.

    Error message?
  2. Thanks a lot for your reply. Yes there was an error message but i got a suggestion to change the name of the computer and then switch from the domain to a workgroup which i did. I later on changed to the original name and joined it again to the domain and i am now able to log in perfectly
    Once again thanks for your concern

    That would do it if the PC somehow fell off the domain, but without knowing what the error message is, issue could have been several things.
