Why should it take NetBIOS time to discover pcs? You change any settings and do a restart then it should be recognised, why is there a time factor?

I've had this problem since I installed a new hard drive in the laptop. That connects to Windows XP no problem, XP can't access my laptop when it could before the new hard drive in the laptop.

Does the Speccy links show anything?

Ok I've got Windows XP to connect to my Windows 7 laptop.

I make notes of every setting for future reference in a text file and saved it to both computers. After I checked settings after the new laptop hard drive.

Network and Sharing Center

Turn off password protected sharing - selected when I checked it was now on selected.

I've checked and triple checked these settings.

How the hell can setting be changed on there own?
