Windows 7: cant connect media pc to homegroup

cant connect media pc to homegroup

Hi guys,

I just set up my home network to have a homegroup.

After setting it up i went to my media pc (right next to my pc) and went to type in the password, and it comes up with incorrect password, so i went downstairs and tried it on a laptop and it connected fine ?? I tried changing the password and rebooting both machines. That did nothing, tried about 3 times. I then disbanded the homegroup, rebooted and restarted the homegroup and am still having problems connecting my media pc to it.

Any help would be appreciated, Thanks
