  1. Yo, how do I name my computer?


    Hello everyone, my name is Dan but you can call me 360 Dabbin' on them H8ters. I got tired of using my PlayStation 4 as a computer (no shade towards my homie, tho) and walked down to my neighborhood Best Buy to buy a Chromebook. Turns out they had none, so I bought a HP Pavillion laptop. As I was paying for it, this dude behind me said I could name my laptop and I was like, "Yo, thats awesome, my dude! But how do you name it?" And he said he didnt know. So now im here to ask fellow PC lovers, how do I name my PC?

    :)

    We appreciate you getting back to us. To change the cmd name, we suggest that you follow this steps:

    • Open a Command Prompt (Adimin) window: Win+X, A, Alt+Y
    • Then run the following command to change your computer name to Donner: WMIC ComputerSystem where Name=COMPUTER-NAME call Rename Name=NewName
    • Reboot your PC.
    • Try to run ipconfig / all command, you should find that the Host Name in Windows IP Configuration list has been changed to the new name.

    Keep us posted with the result.

    One computer cannot access other network computers.


    So I've tried every troubleshooting step I know:
    • Double checked that Net Bios was enabled
    • Ran a bunch of network commands:
      • flushed DNS
      • registered dns
      • pinged and located the named computers successfully
    • Reset my router to factory settings

    Nothing works when I try to access via explorer. I'm still baffled by the fact that every other computer can access each other AND access this computer. It's just the outgoing connection from this machine that doesn't work.

    Any thoughts?
