Windows 7: New PC replaces Homegroup host, but won't let me join

New PC replaces Homegroup host, but won't let me join

I originally set up a Homegroup from a PC I have now replaced. My new PC recognises that there is a Homegroup, but won't let me join - it says the password is wrong.

Of course, I can't see the password because I can't join ...

Can you log in to one of the other computers that are part of the original Home Group and get the password there?

I know the password, but as the "server" for the Homegroup is not connected, I guess that Windows doesn't.
