Ensure "File and printer sharing" is on on th PC.
Ensure the printer is shared. There will be a hand symbol under it when shared.
Disable any firewalls briefly.
Run the add printer wizard on laptop - ensuring you pick network printer.

You also need to install the Win7 driver for your printer - you can get it from here (select your Operating System)
