Can ping but not browse

Hi there

We've got about 15pcs at work, all on one network. All connect to one switch, and the router connects to the switch so all has internet access. Four pcs has got windows vista on, the rest XP.

Yesterday I tuned on the one pc with Vista on, but could not connect to a mapped drive. I checked in the network places, i could see only three pcs, all three xp pcs. I can browse the internet, but not the pcs on my local network, and I can ping the pcs on the network.

Please help?
