    username and password.. what to do???

  11. as easy as this THANK YOU so much, MUCH HELP

  12. u did not explain the ip address or the type of connection. example wire or

  13. I can’t view my shared XP folders on the target laptop. It is running
    Windows 7 Home Basic and registers that it has been connected to an
    “Unidentified Network” in the toolbar on the bottom right of the screen.
    However, under Computer >Network, it does not pick up the XP computer. I
    know that the Windows 7 laptop is normally shared in a different network
    but I wouldn’t think that this would cause a problem. Do you have any
    solutions? Thanks 

  14. Remember that all shared computers must be in the same workgroup. I noticed
    that the XPPC computer in this demo was in a workgroup called “WORKGROUP.”
    While that’s the default group name in Windows 7, the default group name in
    Windows XP is “MSHOME.”

    So be sure to check on both machines.

    Also, Windows 7 will not allow you to share the root drive, as Windows XP
    will. If you have an external hard drive on Windows 7 and want your XP
    computer to have full access to all files, create a master folder on the
    external drive, then put everything else on the drive inside it and share
    the folder. Your XP machine(s) will be able to see, read, and access the
    master folder, even if the root drive is not accessible.

  15. Thanks great help

    or something close to it. can i use this method to get into the display
