Check out ur internet connection security options,ur access maybe denied by network.
you could also reinstall windows and when it comes to the installation option choose repair.not in the first window.when you boot from disk a option of install or repair(press "r")appears ...choose install.sys checks for existing os and asks install or repair (second window option) at this point you can choose repair.works similar to restore only replaces default values and leaves existing software you may of installed personally intact.

Its probebly because of some virus
you didn't mention that your home network is using internet or not
if yes then probebly you get any vrus from net which is not allowing to see you your disk drive
find any good antivirus and scan your hard drive
dont relay on your exixting anti virus it might not working now
and one more thing to do
whichever drive you can not open try to open it from run
start > run > c:
it shows you c drive in case of c drive 's problem
now find autorun.inf and delet all content from it and save blank autorun.inf
sothat your os will work on its own and not relay on autorun.inf
try this out

How do you access the hard drive from other pc's apart from the one that it was originally installed on, the original is running vista and the laptop w7


You can share your harddrive.
for that open my computer then right click on harddrive icon then click on sharing and security.
Then share the drive and set permission to everyone to full rights or read or write.

Printer wont print from notebook even tho it prints from desktop on a home network, My notebook is a hp pavillion 6915nr with windows vista home premium oper system


To get it to print from your notebook you will first have to install it on the notebook as a network/shared printer. To do this you'll run the add hardware wizard/printers making sure the printer is on and connected to the network. Once windows installs the printer driver you should be all set. Hope this helps.

I CANT ACCESS MY HARD DRIVE


hi, go under the Security option of your Hdd partition and make sure the Administrator and Owner are there. Make sure that your User name is there too with full permission. If it doesn't work on the same screen click on Advanced (located under the permissions tab) and click on the owner tab. Now click on your user name and select replace owner... at the bottom and click ok. it should work

File sharing


it is possible

If you have multiple computers in your home and they are connected through a home network, you can share files among your computers. That means you no longer have to copy files to a floppy disk or USB flash drive to transfer them to another computer. Once you configure your computer to share files, you (or another user with the appropriate permissions) can, by using Windows Explorer, open them from other computers connected to the network, just like you’d open files that are stored on a single computer. You can also choose to have folders visible—but not modifiable—from other computers on the network.
To share files on your computer with other computers on a network, you need to:
Share a folder on your computer. This will make all of the files in the folder available to all the computers on your network (you can’t share individual files).
Set up user accounts on your computer for everyone who needs to connect to your shared folder. If any of the accounts are Limited User accounts (unless an account is a Computer Administrator account, it is a Limited User account), follow the steps in Set permissions for files and folders to enable them to open your files.

To access shared files that are on another computer on your network, you need to:
• Connect to the shared folder from other computers on the network. This procedure is described in Map a network drive.

Note: By default, file permissions only allow your user account and administrators on your local computer to open your files, regardless of whether a person is sitting at your keyboard or at another computer. It may help to keep these three things in mind when setting up file sharing:
• Files have user permission settings.
• Every computer has its own user database.
• Some accounts are administrator accounts and some aren’t.

Configure your computer to share files To share a folder on your computer so that files stored in the folder can be accessed from other computers on your home network
1.
Log on to your computer as an administrator. For more information, see Access the administrator account from the Welcome screen.
2.
Click Start, and then click My Documents.
68599-click-my-documents.gif 3.
Right-click the folder that you want to share, and then click Sharing and Security.
68599-click-sharing-and-security.gificotip.gif Tip: If you want to share your entire My Documents folder, open My Documents, and then click the Up button on the toolbar. You can then select the My Documents folder.
4.
If you see a message that reads, As a security measure, Windows has disabled remote access to this computer, click the Network Setup Wizard link. Then follow the instructions in How to set up your computer for home networking. On the File and printer sharing page of the Network Setup Wizard, be sure to select Turn on file and printer sharing. If you do not see this message, skip this step and go to step 5.
68599-click-network-setup-wizard.gif Note: If you do not see the Network Setup Wizard link or the Share this folder on the network check box, your computer probably has Simple File Sharing disabled. This is a common change made to computers used for business. In fact, it happens automatically when a computer joins an Active Directory domain. You should follow these instructions to share a folder instead.
5.
In the Properties dialog box, select the Share this folder on the network check box.
68599-click-share-this-folder.gif 6.
If you want to be able to edit your files from any computer on your network (instead of just being able to open them without saving any changes), select the Allow network users to change my files check box.
68599-click-allow-network-users-to-change-my-files.gif 7.
Click OK.
68599-click-ok.gif Windows Explorer will show a hand holding the folder icon, indicating that the folder is now shared.
To connect to the shared folder from another computer, follow the steps described in How to map a network drive.
Note: By default, only you and other people with an administrator account on the computer sharing the folder will be able to open your files. To limit access of specific users with an administrator account on the computer sharing the folder, read How to set permissions for files and folders.

Networking problem


Make it sure if the user you used in the laptop is administrator right because you need the administrator right to access some network computer. check also if the desktop share folder is share with full access it maybe the right is read only.
