Windows 7: Remote Desktop Connection not working?

Remote Desktop Connection not working?

I am trying to set up a remote login with my two laptops, w-PC, and w2-PC.

Firewalls are turned off. The box for the remote coonection is enabled and checked. When I try to connect to w2-PC from w-PC, I get this error message every single time.

Remote Desktop can't connect to the remote computer for one of these reasons:
  1. Remote access to the server is not enabled
  2. The remote computer is turned off
  3. The remote computer is not available on the network
Make sure the remote computer is turned on and connected to the network, and that remote access is enabled.

I have been trying to figure this out for an hour and cannot get it to work. I have the firewall turned off on both computers.
\
How can I solve this problem?

Why not try Teamviewer pal ... very little configuration and very easy to use

To configure remote access, follow these steps:
1. In Control Panel, click System And Security, and then click System.
2. On the System page, click Remote Settings in the left pane. This opens the System Properties dialog box to the Remote tab.
3. To disable Remote Desktop, select Donít Allow Connections To This Com¨puter, and then click OK.Skip the remaining steps.
4. To enable Remote Desktop, you have two options. You can:
  • Select Allow Connections From Computers Running Any Version Of Remote Desktop to allow connections from any version of Windows.
  • Select Allow Connections Only From Computers Running Remote Desktop With Network Level Authentication to allow connections only from Windows 7 or later computers (and computers with secure network authentication).
5. Click Select Users. This displays the Remote Desktop Users dialog box.
6. To grant Remote Desktop access to a user, click Add. This opens the Select Users dialog box. In the Select Users dialog box, click Locations to select the computer or domain in which the users you want to work with are located. Type the name of a user you want to work with in the Enter The Object Names To Select field, and then click Check Names. If matches are found, select the account you want to use and then click OK. If no matches are found, update the name you entered and try searching again. Repeat this step as necessary, and then click OK.
7. To revoke remote access permissions for a user account, select the account and then click Remove.
8. Click OK twice when you have finished.

I agree with that. Remote Desktop seems to have a lot of issues on this site with people turning of the sound on remote desktop will help you connect. Follow the screenshot below but teamviewer is a more user friendly program.
