[Samba] Windows 7 can't see Pi Samba server

I have configured a Raspberry Pi (running Raspbian o/s) to act as a Samba
server to share files with my home Windows workgroup. One of my Windows 7
laptops can see the share fine, but the other WIndows 7 laptop refuses to
see the Pi server at all. I have checked all the obvious things (Workgroup
name, password etc) and don't know what else to do. I would welcome any
suggestions. In case it helps, below is the active content of my smb.conf

Best regards
