One PC Cannot connect to server

Dear,

Server: windows 7; C shared with Everyone full access
Laptop: Windows 7;
PC: windows XP

Laptop and WinXP PC can ping Server;
Laptop can connect to Server through View workgroup Computers, mapping, etc.
WinXP PC: I can't map to Server; I see it in View workgroup Computers but can't have access to it (when i double click on it)

Pls advise.

Thank you
