This could be anything form the other PC not being turned on to it being on a different network, typing in the wrong name, etc...

Need exact details as to what you are doing and the network setup between the computers, operating systems versions on both systems, did this work before.

Don't know if you still have the issue, I recently started having this issue (seemingly out of no-where); just thought I'd post my fix. I have SuperAntiSpyware on my computer (I'm not advertising for them, just don't want anyone to go through all the long hours I went through), there's a tool in the "Repairs" section of SAS called "Repair broken Network Connection (Winsock LSP Chain)". As the program states, please use with caution. Once I ran that, I had to restart as it did something in the registry. Once it came back up, BAM, fixed; after about a month of trying to fix it... BTW, it says it's only for Window Xp (the tool), but I used it on my Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit, no issues. Hope this helps :-)
