    STEP 1: Click Start >> Control Panel.
    STEP 2: Type System in the search box and hit Enter.
    STEP 3: Click System.
    STEP 4: You can see the name of the work group in Computer name >> Domain >> Workgroup Settings.
    STEP 5: Click Change Settings.
    STEP 6: If asked for Administrative Password, give and confirm it.
    STEP 8: In System Properties dialog box, tap on the Computer Name tab.
    STEP 9: Click on the Change Button.

    HEy friend ,

    This problem is basically due to the computers in different work domain & workgroup or in different network.
    -so first of all check that your systems are in same work domain or in same work group.
    -Now secondly check your systems ip address and make sure that both are using same subnet and different ip address.
    -Third main thing is you make sure that you have provided passwords to your both systems because windows 7 not support unsecure networking .
    Now try to access the computers hope your problem will be solved.
