My desktop computer is running Windows XP and my laptop is running Windows 7. I went through my desktop and created a network disc (on a jump drive). When I initially run this on the laptop, it sees the desktop, lets me access everything on the desktop that I need to, etc. However, once the laptop is turned off, the next time I have to go through the process all over again. I even saved the file on the laptop thinking that I could just run it from there, but it doesn't work. I have to go back to the desktop and go through the whole thing all over again for it to work properly. It will connect to the internet just fine, but refuses to connect to the desktop or printer without going through it all again.
I'm figuring that some setting isn't correct on the laptop, but don't know what that would be. (This is my first experience with Win7. Any advice would be GREAT!
