MS Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit SP1

Welcome to Windows Seven forums!

From your post I understand your home PC is window 7 x64. But what OS your office PC had and presently has?

This upgradation is only hardware with same OS or both or only software?

We need this information to attempt to give you an answer.

As you are able to access your system from within your office, this could be a configuration issue with the firewall in your office and the group policy on your office server.
