Windows 10 local network

Recommended Posts

I have always been a big fan of Windows 7. I have 4 Media PCs throughout my house and a laptop. I have recently updated some of them to Windows 10 Pro. I have tried everything to get them talking on my LAN. I cannot share files anymore. They all ping, but are missing in the network folder. Thank God for Plex. Any advice?

To enable file sharing in Windows 10:
  1. Open the Network and Sharing Center by clicking Start > Control Panel, clicking Network and Sharing Center, and then clicking Advanced sharing settings.
  2. To enable network discovery, click the arrow to expand the section, click Turn on network discovery, and then click Apply. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
  3. To enable file sharing, click the arrow to expand the section, click Turn on file and printer sharing, and then click Apply. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
  4. Click Save changes.
If you are still having trouble, make sure Windows Firewall is not blocking file and printer sharing. Do the following:
  1. Open Windows Firewall by clicking the Start > Control Panel, clicking Security, and then clicking Windows Firewall.
  2. Click Allow a program through Windows Firewall. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
  3. In the Program or port list, make sure the File and Printer Sharing check box is selected, and then click OK.

it could be because you have blank passwords on the account you are using to access shares.  You can test by creating local test accounts with password.

 

If blank passwords are necessary, then you will need to change the local computer security setting to allow blank passwords using local group policy editor

 

change 'Accounts:  limit local account use of blank passwords to console logon only' to Disabled

it is located under 'Computer Configuration / Windows Settings / Security Settings / Local Policies / Security Options'

      Hi guys,
       
      I'm sorry for making another thread just for this but I really wanted to pick your brains on this!
       
      I have an m15x with a 770m running windows 7 and everything works. Rock. Solid. I'm pretty happy with it. Since windows 7 is on it's way out, I would like to upgrade to windows 10. Now I've looked into it before and had a really hard time getting the 770m to behave nicely and had all these issues with green/yellow/pink screens and I remember it being a miracle I got it to work on 7 as good as it does.
       
      My question is how well does the 970m install vs the 770m - particularly on windows 10? I would buy it in a heartbeat if it makes the install less tedious with the colored screens and all that. Especially if all the functions work on it! I have been searching the internet and I cannot find nearly as many problems with the 970m as I could with the 770m, or am I just  not looking in the right places?
       
      Thanks a million!

      Hello
       
      My M18XR2 was working on Windows 10 with a 880M.
      Last week, I reinstalled my system, and I couldn't get nvidia driver working...
      I took the last installed modified driver, and even downloaded latest version, modified it again, nothing to do, I have same error : nvidia installation failed. 
      I only install the graphic driver too, it fail. The screen goes black, then light again, and it fail...
      Do someone have an idea how to fix this probleme ? 
      Thank you

      Hi all. I was wondering if anyone had ever figured out if windows 10 will work with the GTX 770m on the M15x (bios A09). I've found a few forum posts about it and they all end up off topic. Ive tried a few different driver versions but every single one ends up green/pink/white screening when I enable the IDT sound device in device manager and through driver setup. It is stable if I don't have the device enabled. Anyone have any advice?
