Trouble connecting XP PC to Windows 7 PC attached printer

Have spent hours trying to google and find soultions to getting an XP printer to print via a home network on a Windows 7 PC that has a HP 1022 printer attached via USB. When I started out I could access the XP machine over the network but not vice versa, but can't even see it anymore.

Already install HP 1022 drivers on winxp?

What is ip address of win7 machine? Run IPCONFIG to find it. Most of the time it starts with 192.168

It says the resource is not accessible. A ping 192.168.1.104 does get a response though.
