My boss just bought a HP Pavilion dv9000 with Windows Vista Home Premium. I am trying to add it to the wired office network (all other computers are Dells running XP). After much difficulty and heavy drinking, I finally got the notebook to recognize the other computers. However, I am unable to access the notebook from any other computer. The c drive shows that it is shared and the network is set to private, and the network discovery, file, public folder, and printers sharing are all on. I'm wondering if there is some freaky user permissions issue that I'm missing. Any suggestions? I'll be happy to give you my firstborn or utmost respect, whichever you prefer.
