Lets say server's IP is 192.168.1.10. You cannot ping server but you can ping 192.168.1.10, both from the XP client. You cannot run \\server. What happens if you run \\192.168.1.10?
There is some difference (in the TCP/IP settings) between the working clients and the problematic XP client.

OK. So just to be sure: you tried to run \\192.168.1.52 from the XP client, right?
Does the 7's Windows Application/Security/System Logs show any Warnings/Errors that might help?

ya i have tried to run \\192.168.1.52 from the XP client getting same error.
In windows 7 System Logs shows in one particular error message.

"The server was unable to allocate from the system nonpaged pool because the server reached the configured limit for nonpaged pool allocations."

Event ID is 2017.

I don't think the error you reported is related to your issue.
The XP client doesn't show anything useful in it's Logs (again, Application/Security/System)?

thanks  strivoli for suggestion of 7's Windows Application/Security/System Logs.

"The server was unable to allocate from the system nonpaged pool because the server reached the configured limit for nonpaged pool allocations."

i have resolved above issue making changes in registry.

Set the following registry key to ‘1':

HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management\LargeSystemCache

and set the following registry key to ‘3':

HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanServer\Parameters\Size

The registry changes definitely worked for me.

Made the changes and then restarted the Windows 7 connecting server and WinXP client.

Is there maybe a link that explains the registry keys and why they would be affected after some time?

Thank you for the solution  2gainknowledge and strivoli
