Default XP PC's can't find each other

I have an HP dv4000 and I'm trying to Network it w/ an eMachines T5010. I have it hooked up w/ a crossover cable. The HP will somtimes find the emachines, but the emachines can't find the HP. I tried playing a game over the network and it worked fine. It's just a problem when in windows. The only way that My hp can find the other pc is when I type in the IP address, I can't find it by typing in the computer name. The first time i networked both of these PCs they worked fine. after i tried it again 1 week later the problem came up. I tried hooking the HP up to a windows 98 se pc and it found the hp w/ no problem. The IP address of my HP is 192.168.1.1, the emachines is 192.168.1.8. Subnet mask on both are 255.255.255.0.
Thanks for any help

I worked on this for several hours with no solution, I can't figure this out. I disabled the firewalls on both comps too
