    Make sure the PC is on, and then go to the Printers & Faxes setup page.
    Right click and go to sharing.
    Set the share details (name).
    Then if you try to set up a new network printer on the Laptop, and browse to the printer on ur PC.
    Then it should (SHOULD) work.
    0-60 in 6.5 secs and 48mpg- winner!
