Hi,
I have HP core i5 laptop windows 7 pro 64bit sp1. since last three days I am not able to connect to my windows 2003 sbs sp2. I can ping or even can establish remote desktop connection. Earlier I was able to access shared files on the server. The rest of the machines (all windows xp pro) in the network are able to access the server. I have tried all the possible solutions. (flushing DNS, renewing IP etc.) My DHCP is handled by router and not by the server.

Thanks

Did you try it with "net use"?

Is this a domain?

Are you using a domain account?

Which version of Windows 7?

This is domain but I am not using it. All computers are connected to server for file sharing.
I am using windows 7 professional sp1. Previously I was able to connect and use files on the server.

So your using a local windows 7 account to logon the the computer with.

Then you need to add a local account to the server that matches the account on the windows 7 computer
Next give that local account file share permissions.

Would be a lot better if you logged on to the domain

I have already added local account on the server. While joining the domain it gives me error.

An attempt to resolve the DNS name of a DC in the domain being joined has
failed. Please verify this client is configured to reach a DNS server that
can resolve DNS names in the target domain
