 I'm hoping one of you has had a similar problem that you've resolved. I have a Toshiba Satellite laptop with Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit and an HP desktop with Windows XP, service pack 2 I believe. I'm trying to network them to share a printer. Both computers have the printer drivers and software installed. Both computers have file sharing enabled in every possible place. 
I can see the laptop on the desktop, but not the other way around. I've googled a lot and tried everything suggested (updating drivers, password protecting the laptop, etc.)

How can I fix this?

I'd like to be able to print without sending everything to the other computer. Bah.

Don't know/don't care/doesn't apply to you:  how responsible are you with money? Do you have a savings?


ETA:  Just in case someone else has this problem and finds this, I fixed it by switching the network on windows 7 from home to work which can be done in Network and Sharing under the Control Panel. Also by making sure my other computer didn't go into standby lol.
