Do you mean you have problems joining the domain or just browsing shares?

In any case, perhaps the first thing you might want to check are the 
Samba logs located in /var/log/samba

There, look for YOUR_MACHINENAME.log.

Make sure you have log level set in smb.conf (3 is usually a good value).

Try removing YOUR_MACHINENAME.log, and then try to do the action that 
causes you trouble - the log will appear again and you will probably 
have a clue what is wrong.

Hope this helps a bit.
