Windows 7: Can't access PC's shared files from Laptop

Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit
Can't access PC's shared files from Laptop

I just bought a laptop yesterday and I'm trying to fit it into an already existing home network(wireless not wired). Everything work except the Laptop can't see my PC's files or folders even though I turned off all firewalls and Antivirus software and shared the folders manually and shared them through the homegroup options(both are running Windows 7, the PC has Ultimate 32-bit and the Laptop has Home Premium 32-bit).
It tells me that there's a Network Error and "Windows cannot access \\ANDARTHIEL-PC\" with the error code 0x80070035 - The Network Path Was not found
Any ideas?

I would suggest you try one thing at a time either Homegroup or normal sharing. Try these and see if you can get rood results. Good luck.
