Windows 7: network password not recognised

network password not recognised

I have a desktop and a laptop. Both Windows 7
If I try to access files on desktop I am asked for a password. When I put in the password which is the same as that in the windows vault on both computers I am toldit is incorrect.
It may be wanting aassword for the computer rather than the workgroup but I cannot sort it out.
I was told networking was easy on windows 7 but its much harder that when my desktop was XP and laptop vista!

Hi and welcome

I assume you are using Homegroup. It has its own password that was shown to you on setup. You can rerieve it or change it by going into the networking>homegroup setup

Let us know if it doesnt work
