Can't connect to computer, but it can connect to other computers.

Help, I've been working on this one for a while. I have a laptop on the network that cannot be accessed remotely, but it can get on the internet and files on the server OK. I can ping FROM it, but I can't ping it from other computers.
I looked at a few posts and they show Windows XP's firewall is the problem, but I've turned it right off and rebooted and it still can't be remotely accessed (i.e. by VNC or remote desktop).
It's an Acer TravelMate 4100 with Windows XP SP2 installed on it.
Any ideas I can try?
The only other "security" software is Trend Micro AV - no firewall software of any kind.
