    There are several things that I can think of that might be the problem.

    1 - Do you have a firewall running on your PC?
    2 - If you are running XP you may need to enter your XP username/password.
    3 - Do you have any shared folders or drives on the PC?
    4 - How are you trying to connect? Are you trying to connect through Finder? If so are you typing smb://+PC's ip address?

    I hope this helps.

    In Finder select Go>Connect To Server.

    Type SMB://[PC IP address]
