Cannot get a network drive to map.

Specs: Windows 7, Intel Q6600 / 6GB DDR2
I have a Windows 7 desktop and a Windows Vista laptop. I network my 1.5TB hard drive to my laptop so that I can use my tower as a file server. The mapped drive was working fine until today. I went to access the drive on my laptop today and it said it could not connect. It does this sometimes so I disconnected it and tried to remap it. It wouldn't go though and gave me Error Code: 0x80070035, The network path was not found.

I've double and triple checked and the path is correct. When I ping the computers it comes up Destination host unreachable. I have both computers set to static IP. All other network functions work fine and I can browse the net on both computers. I've tried disabling both firewalls and still nothing. I also added both computers to Norton's respective protected lists. I'm thoroughly stumped and can't figure this out for the life of me. Any suggestions?

Is this external drive connected to the network directly and have it's own IP address, or is it connected to a computer using a USB cable?

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
