[SOLVED] Network and Computer Names

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Ok this has been driving me crazy now for a couple weeks. When I go to my network on any of my 3 computers, DaveMain, DaveMedia, and DaveNetbook, only my main shows up like typed. The other two show up as DAVEMEDIA and DAVENETBOOK. I know it's not really a big deal but for some reason I can't stand it. Does anyone know of a way to change this? I've looked into the changing the netbios, but can't figure it out. Any help would be very much appreciated. Thanks

You're agitated due to case sensitivity?

This is in a workgroup and not a domain right?

Check spelling here:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\ComputerName\ComputerName\ComputerName

Don't know if this will work but,try renaming computers> locking caps on and using shift-key for lower cased letters(reboot).

Windows workgroup and domain names are all caps by nature. There is no way to fix this nor should there be.

Every networked computer name I have ever seen is all caps.
