Just a guess:

XP supported LM an NTLM hashed password. Win7 uses only NTLM by default. 
Maybe your password was last time set a long time ago and only the LM 
hash was saved on your server. And if the other users had changed their 
password later, where it was also stored as NTLM hash, this could 
explain, why they can login and you can't.

What happens if you reset your password?

For more ideas/help, please provide some more information (samba 
version, etc.).
