Lack of network connectivity

by CN5 / August 14, 2006 3:46 AM PDT

I have three XP Pro machines hardwired into a network. Two of the machines share disks and folders with no problems. The third machine does not seem to be connected correctly. It shows up in My Network Places. However, when I attempt to access a folder on the machine from another computer I get the message, "Network path could not be found". I believe I have set the sharing permissions correctly because I can get to the folder for the other machine.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

1. NEVER put your email address in the clear.

2. Please use the prior discussions about your topic. Nothing new is in your post so it would be the same discussion "one more time."

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
