A couple of things to start with:
1) Establish identical user accounts (with identical passwords) on each system. Don't rename an account, that won't help.
2) Using Windows Explorer on the laptop, select "Map Network Drive" from the Tools menu item - then browse to the D: drive on the desktop and select it. You can even choose what drive letter to assign to it (may require renaming other drive letters in Disk Management if you want it to be the D: drive).
3) Make sure that the music folders are shared on the Desktop (right click on the folder and select "Sharing")
Slow response time with network tasks only is usually an indicator that Windows is looking for a network resource that doesn't exist. I'd suggest checking around to see if there's anything obvious that's causing this. FWIW - the mapped network drive (in step 2 above) should help to alleviate this.
