How do I fix my hp625 problem which ask for the password of its homegropuser$

Try this it comes from the windows help file on Windows 7
You should let Windows manage
your home network connections because it's the easiest and best way to share
files and printers.

But if you've previously set up customized sharing permissions on
your network following the procedures in Windows XP or Windows Vista and you want to maintain those
permissions when using a homegroup, you can choose to manage network connections
yourself. If you choose this option, you'll need to use your user account and
password when accessing other computers.

To continue using customized permissions, create or join a
homegroup, and then follow these steps:

  1. Click to open Advanced sharing settings.

  2. Click the chevron to expand the
    Home or Work network profile.

  3. Under HomeGroup connections, click Use user accounts and passwords to connect to other computers,
    and then click Save changes.

Set up a computer-to-computer (ad hoc) network

An ad hoc network is a temporary connection between computers and devices used for a specific purpose, such as sharing documents during a meeting or playing multiple-player computer games. You can also temporarily share an Internet connection with other people on your ad hoc network, so those people don’t have to set up their own Internet connections. Ad hoc networks can only be wireless, so you must have a wireless network adapter installed in your computer to set up or join an ad hoc network.

Click to open Connect to a Network.

Click Set up a connection or network.

Click Set up an ad hoc (computer-to-computer) network, click Next, and then follow the steps in the wizard.

If one or more of the networked computers is joined to a domain, you need to have a user account on that computer to see and access shared items on it.

If the networked computers are not joined to a domain, but you want to require people to have a user account on your computer for access to shared items, turn on password protected sharing in Network and Sharing Center.

To turn on password protected sharing
Click to open Network and Sharing Center.

Under Sharing and Discovery, if password protected sharing is off, click the arrow button to expand the section, click Turn on password protected sharing, and then click Apply. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

An ad hoc network is automatically deleted after all users disconnect from the network or when the person who set up the network disconnects and goes out of range of the other users of the network, unless you choose to make it a permanent network when you create it.

If you share your Internet connection, Internet connection sharing (ICS) will be disabled if you disconnect from the ad hoc network, you create a new ad hoc network without disconnecting from the old ad hoc network for which you enabled ICS, or you log off and then log back on (without disconnecting from the ad hoc network).

If you set up an ad hoc network and share your Internet connection, and then someone logs on to the same computer by using Fast User Switching, the Internet connection will still be shared, even if you didn't intend to share it with that person.

I hope you all found this information useful and helpful.

I have a Sony Vaio VGN NR220E laptop and I don't know what wire to use to get it hooked up to a Sony Bravia and I need a long wire probably 3-5 feet. Any way that can happen?

There are many ways to connect your Vaio to a Bravia. If you have a router, you can connect both pc's to it using ethernet cable (cable that looks like a telephone cord but a little bigger). Then open your control panel and click on networking. then follow the prompt to create a home network to allow both pc's to share files.

You can also connect to the Bravia using remote desktop through the internet. The easiest way to do it is to open the internet and type in in your search box to locate their website. Then open it. You will see "share" on the left side in orange. Click on the orange arrow. The site will install a small file and then give you a nine digit number on the top of your screen. Have the other computer go to the same website but instead of clicking on "share" you click on "join" on the right side in green instead and then enter the nine digit number into the box and press your enter key on your keyboard.

You should be able to see the Bravia's computer screen. If you want to control the Bravia computer using your Vaio, click on the picture of the mouse at the top of the screen while in and it will send a request for permission to the Bravia to control the mouse and access the files on it. The Bravia approves the request and then you can move and control their mouse.

Just bought a acer labtop can not get the hook up to computor

To network two computers you normally need a switch or a router to act as an intermediary between the two computers IF you still want both to have a functioning internet connection.

Otherwise, take your laptop and plug a Ethernet cable into the laptop and into the back of your computer tower.

I'm assuming you are using windows so go to control panel > network and sharing > Homegroup Options > Join now. This will set up a home network for the rest of the computers connected to share pictures music and other files. You will need to access the homegroup password from Control Panel > Network and Sharing > Homegroup Options. Take that password and add it in to your laptop under the Homegroup menu and you will see your laptop underneath the My Copmputer> Homegroup tab in the side panel. You can begin sharing files between them.

Can i pair my hp laptop to my samsung R480 laptop

It depends on what you mean by "pair" If you want to transfer files, you should be able to do so through either your wireless or ethernet connection. Hopefully you have a connection both computers can use at the same time. Make sure both are in the same workgroup, both have file sharing set up, and decide which files you want to share, copy, or whatever. Go to start, control panel, then system. Then click on computer name tab. Change one or the other so both have the same workgroup, but different computer names. If you change workgroups, you will have to reboot. You need to have sharing set up – decide which folders you want to share, and click on “share this folder”. You will get a warning, and will have to say “ok” to enable sharing.

Now click on "network places" icon, if it is on your desktop. If it isn't, then go to my computer, and click the arrow to go up one level. Network places should be there. Click on "entire network", then on "Microsoft windows network" then on "mshome" or whatever your network is called. You should see at least two computers there. You cannot have two computers with the same name in a network, by the way. If both are in the same workgroup, and both have sharing set up, you can double click on both and shared folders will be there. It is easiest to arrange the two folders side by side. Within those folders are the files you want to share, or copy. Simply select the files, and drag them to the other computer.
