Are you sure that your samba server is running . Other thing what version of
linux are you using. try doing this command and see it theres anything wrong
with it.

$testparm -----------that will test out your server also try this
$ ps aux | grep smb ----------that will tell you if your have your child
$ ps aux | grep nmb ---------- the same thing as above

make sure that both of them are running if not start them up
/etc/rc.d/init.d/ smb start
 give it a few mintues to show up in your windows machine. if you have more
problems let me know ok
