Windows 7 Ultimate x64

No dice, funny, it took me less than 15 mins to run an HDMI cable up the wall, under the bedroom floor, and down to the TV. The nVidia software then opened itself, added sound to the picture for me and the Win7 software opened and explained the duplicate and extend options to me which was great.

This is a b**ch lol

I have set the router to GMT+1, and the machines are all happily on the network map. I've double-checked all the items on the tute, and all okay. I did go through the 'services' on both machines earlier.

Any idea what I should do next?

Thanks again for any help.

I'm the best at network issues, so I'm not sure what the problem may be.

You might consider seeing how setting up a workgroup to share files between the computers may work for you instead as a test.

Windows 7 Professional x64
Problem Solved!

I spent the better part of a day and all last night searching for a solution to my problem and found it this morning on your website! Thank you for the awesome run down on Homegroups! My laptop could not see my Homegroup and couldn't join. After going on countless forums and doing many operations, nothing worked. Until I got to your site. The problem was on my laptop two of the Services you recommended checking were not started! As soon as I started them I was able to see the network and presto! Joined the Homegroup! Thanks, what a great website!
