username and password asked for to access laptop on network
I have managed to get my XP laptop recognised on my network by my Vista
desktop. When I try to acces my laptop through the network on my Vista
computer, I am asked for a username and password. I don't know if the
password I am being asked for is the one I have to enter when I turn on my
laptop and as for the username, I have no idea. Help please.

On the XP laptop, go to Control Panel>User Accounts. Look at the user
accounts listed and write down the names. If this is a home laptop and
you didn't create any user accounts yourself, you may see something like
"Owner" listed. Then go to the Vista machine's Control Panel and create
an identical user account there. Create a password for that account that
matches the one on the XP laptop. Yes, this will be the same as the one
you enter to get into your Windows account.
