Can’t ping or remote desktop?

I've setup a win7 laptop and joined a company domain, I'm unable to ping or remote into the machine.

I've tried removing it from the domain and I still have the same problem...

Could someone provide me with some troubleshooting tips please?

This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

IP address? Windows Firewall? Etc., etc. Can you give us some details on the configuration and what happens or what messages you get when trying to ping or connect to it? – joeqwerty Nov 28 '12 at 16:19
Why did you post this question a second time under a new username? I already answered your old one. – MDMarra Nov 28 '12 at 16:25

You need to enable ICMP (or file sharing) and remote desktop from within the Windows 7 firewall. Also, since you are joining a domain, this may be controlled by group policy.
