In smb.conf [globals] set:

	log level = 5
	log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
	max log size = 0

Then access the samba server from your MS Windows machine. You will need
to examine the logs (big log file!) what is going on and what is failing.
This is really the most productive way to investigate you problem.
