Can't see computer on network

I have 2 windows 7 PCs and one XP. One 7 pc can get to the shared drive on the xp pc. The other 7 pc cannot see the xp pc. I'm sure they are set the same. My brain is fried so I may be overlooking something. Any input would be very helpful.

Can you ping the xp pc from that win7 pc that cannot see it?
