My question is: there is a user who is listed in the user list as a

It could be one of several things. These are just a few:
1) The user's password may have been expired
2) The user's windows account may have been disabled
3) There could be a web part on the site  page that is pulling
information from another site that he does not have access  to

Some questions to ask:
1) Is the user  logged on to the same domain as the SharePoint server?
2) Can the user access other SharePoint sites?
3) Are there others in the Contributors group who are not in any other
groups, and can they access the site?
4) Has the user ever been able to access the site?

The answers to these questions may help point you in the right

An easy test for #3 is to put ?contents=1 at the end of your URL.
That will take you to the web part maintenance page. If it's a bad
web part keeping them out, it won't be render on the maintenance page
and they can get in. If they can get into the maintenance page, but
not the actual page it's a bad web part. The url would look something
like this: http://server/default.aspx?contents=1
