Laptop wont work with homegroup

Q: Laptop wont work with homegroup

Hi again :)

This one is puzzling me alot :/ I cant seem to get the homegroup working between my desktop and my laptop (both running Windows 7 HE SP1). I create the homegroup with my desktop and used the password provided to connect to it on my laptop. It says they are connected. I can access my laptops libraries on my desktop, but if i try to use my laptop to access the desktops libraries i see this:

I have tried disabling the firewall (Avg) on both computers.. Id also like to add that the desktop computer does not always show up in the network.. it is very inconsistent.. I have no clue what is going on!
Any help?!?
Thanks

Preferred Solution: Laptop wont work with homegroup

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Laptop wont work with homegroup

Well start with what it lists there first. Particularity the network location. Also, if you have Windows firewall up try disabling it as well.

ok , I have a Toshiba MK1637GSX 160GB SATA Laptop HDD which i have been told has failed. I finally got a Sata/Pata converter card (only goes SATA TO PATA) in an attempt to recover the data. When i boot my desktop with my regular HDD (PATA) and the SATA HDD as the secondary, it would detect that it was a Toshiba MK1637GSX but would not boot. SO, I plugged the primary HDD in on its own cable in pl 1 and the SATA on its own cable in pl 2. I then was able to boot!!! The black screen at the boot showed the drive but when windows came up and I checked in MY COMPUTER(XP), the drive was not there. So i then went to ADD NEW HARDWARE and there was no help.
ALSO I have a second PATA HDD that i use to store files so i know i can have more than 1.

Update!: i ordered 3 BRAND NEW 100GB HDDs of the exact same type. I ran the out-of-box-state restore and it installed Windows Vista and set the new HDD as if it was OoB. When laptop restarted, it got to the Windows loading screen and the SD card reader light came on (with no card) and would not progress. I tried putting a card in and removing it, and it then went to CONFIGURING WINDOWS FOR FIRST TIME USE! Afterwards it restarted and got to the loading screen SD light came on and never progressed, even after trying adding/removing card. 2 hrs later, no progress.

Hi!
I have all my class assignments on a CD. Up until today, I have been able to open the CD on my laptop and access my files. Today, when I popped the CD in, there was nothing on it. I put the CD in my other computer, and it reads the CD fine. The only trouble is that computer does not have MS Office on it so opening the files on that computer is just as useless.
Should I restart my computer? (I don't remember seing any notifications that I got new updates)
Is my drive dirty? (if so, what is the best way to clean it?)
Thanks for any advice!

have about a 2 year Toshiba laptop and I am having extreme trouble with it. I am about to throw it out my third story window but I thought I should post here to see if any if you guys could help.

It all started about a month ago when my computer was running very slowly and one day. I got a message saying message saying windows have to shut down due to a critical error. So it shut down and when I tried to reboot it said windows could not run because of a missing windows directory and to run the recovery console on the windows XP CD. Well the problem was that I donít have the window XP CD just the Toshiba recovery CD which formats the drive and automatically installs windows XP.

Well, so I tried using the Toshiba Recovery CD but kept on getting either a bad system partition error, it installed but when I restarted all I got was a blank screen like no operating system was installed, or that same windows directory error. About after the 8th try of using the Toshiba recovery CD I got windows installed successfully. However it ran very very very slow, even at the boot up. I managed to run ad aware and a virus scanner and it found spy ware and viruses on it even though it was a clean install. Thatís not my main problem though every time my computer went to sleep (automatically after 1 hr or so) and came back up it would show that same windows error. Saying that windows could not start because the windows/system32/config/system directory is missing. So I ran the recovery CD aga... Read more

Hi patrick477,Welcome to the BC forums.Your d/ drive is probably set up for use as a recovery drive, as opposed to a place for backups.Look at START -> COMPUTER and a screen showing your various drives should pop up.

Tried resetting it and removing the battery. I dont know what to do. Please help. 

A:Laptop keys wont work

At a minimum you will need to replace the keyboard. The juice likely seeped down and has now wiped out the whole keyboard and you will be lucky if it does not affect the motherboard. When you spill something sticky and sweet like that you have to disassemble clean and properly dry it out.

I took the Laptop into work and hooked it up to the wireless connection and the same thing happens. (No connection)

If anyone has any pointers please let me know

Hey everyone,
So today my friend dropped his laptop and said that the computer wont work. So I took it in my hands. The laptop is a Acer 5532-5194. The problem is that when ever i boot the laptop, all the leds turn on ( the power led, the optical drive led) and even the optical drive can eject, but no display! Its just a black screen and nothing appears. I tried to boot it without the battery and just AC adaptor but that didn't make a difference. I swapped hard drives with my own laptop, that didn't work. Not sure what else to try and what the heck the problem is. I even plugged it into a external monitor seeing if that would do any good...NOPE, I was wrong. So could someone else tell me what I could do to fix it and what the problem may be?

I used to have a laptop connected with wireless (netgear WG511) through a router (D-link) to my main computer with the internet.

Yesterday I got a new laptop, upgrading from an IBM r40 to an r52, and was wondering how to get the wireless network working again. The r52 appears to have a wireless card built in, and can find networks, as it can find my neighbours one (but cant connect)

I tried installing the Netgear external wireless card, but that didnt do anything except make a new network connection, which also didnt work.

I have used the game on a previous Dell laptop and it worked fine so the game is alright, also, I have played other games on my new laptop and its fine. On the other hand it doesnt recognise certain DVD's either. I thought the spec of my laptop was adequate for the Sims 3 but I could be wrong. Any help would be much appreciated!

So as the title says, the keys on the top of my laptop (Under the F keys) don't work in the sense that they give a jumble of symbols/more than one number, rather than what it should:

So from left to right, finishing at the backspace, this is what i get (What you should normally get is on the left, and what i got is on the right)
` = `1
1 = `1
2 = Doesn't give any number, it just opens a new tab in the browser
3 = 3
4 = 54
5 = 54
6 = 67
7 = 67
8 = =8
9 = 9
0 = -0
- = -0
= = =8

With Shift
~ = ~!
! = ~!
@ = @
# = #
$ = %$
% = %$
^ = ^&
& = ^&
( = (
) = _)
- = _)
+ = +*

Sometimes it works alright, and other times this is what happens. Though, this is the longest period of time that it has been messed up for. Also, all the other keys work fine.
