    I have network group set up for 5 computers and everything is okay except 1 computer, lets call it X, cant access files from computer, Y, but there arent problems with Y getting into X. On computer X a login screen pops up for computer Y password but it doesnt have a password and it still wont let me in. would it be better to set a password or is there a way to bypass that screen?

    What operating system on computer Y?

    If it is a version of Windows ...

    Open a (black) Command Prompt window:
    Hold the Windows logo key and press r; in the Run box type cmd and click on OK.

    Type the following commands:

    nbtstat -n

    IPCONFIG /ALL

    [Note that there is no space between the slash and ALL.]

    Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
    Paste the results in a message here.

    If necessary use a text file and removable media to copy the results to a computer with internet access.
