Windows 7 - IP address conflict error message pops up periodically. Error Message "Another computer on this network has the same IP address as this computer.

Error Message "Another computer on this network has the same IP address as this computer. Contact you network administrator for help resolving this issue. More details are available in the Windows System event log"

 

Does anybody have a simple (for a dummy) way of resolving this. If I switch my wireless router and Laptop off and switch both back on again this sorts the problem temporarly but it does not provide a final solution.  I am using a new Laptop and my old one has been scrapped so I don't know where this 'conflict' is coming from.  My old Laptop had Windows XP OS and my new one Windows 7.  I hope someone can supply a solution to this annoying problem.
