Dear,

I try that what your said @ 1 Point, i try to access my server from that problem Laptop using the same comment \\computer name, its showing me the shared folder. and i try to ping my domain, its pinging perfectly.

i did your 2nd point also

 did the 3rd point also, i remove that laptop from domain & i join again but the result is same.

This point how can i check: in network and sharing does it list the connection as the domain name? in Windows XP i can see the domain name, but in Windows 7 how can i check

Thanks

Network and Sharing center should list the domain you are connected to in 'view your active network'

also go to advanced sharing options > domain > and make sure all sharing services are on.

also explore \\computername\c$ to other computers in your domain.  sometimes this 'wakes up' network discovery.

Dear,

I tried as per your request, but still i can see the network computers

\\computername - i can see the shared folders

But the result is same
