I used the very same NETWORK name like WORKGROUP or MSHOME or 123456789 ??
But the two computers have different names.

I just discovered a problem with my laptop.
I tried to give it a user password.
It was corrupting the keys as I pressed in the password ******
like seismic beacame se5sm5c
So I had to reformat the drive and reinstall everything
because there might be a malware on that machine.

Now that it has been redone maybe I can get it to work ??

I noted you used the identical computer names for both machines.  You should have a different name on each computer.  The name 
translates to the IP address.  You should have the same workgroup name in both as this is the domain for seeing the other machines. 
I think in Windows 7 it is called something different like homegroup.    The DHCP server in the Windows 7 machine would interfere 
and crash my router so you must insure that is off.  I don’t have Windows 7 but my daughter brings her laptop and it works fine on 
my network now that we made minor changes.  My other daughter brings an Apple and that also works so at times I have Win98, Win XP, 
Win7 and Apple and Linux on at the same time.  I use the WPA/PSK security also.
