    I just bought a laptop running windows 7 on a dual core pentium processor. i
    have several computers joined together on a network that can all talk
    together just fine, one with WinXP and three with Win2000. The WinXP computer
    has no problems talking to the new laptop, but when attempting to access
    files on any of my Win2000 file servers, the laptop can see them but cannot
    access drives or files. It seems to be a problem with password
    authentication, though the password and usernames on all computers are
    identical. I have also tried the reverse direction with all three Win2000
    computers and i get the same issue, i can see the laptop but not access
    anything. Any help or thoughts on this issue is much appreciated.
