Change name on computer+hdmi cable.

Hi.Giving my son my computer with W/7 32Bit and just wanted to know how to change the name on the computer.
I know how to do it on user account but not on the computer itself.

2nd problem is the new computer has an HDMI slot and I am also using a Samsung TV/Monitor which also has a HDMI slot.
Now if I connect the HDMI cable to the comuter and TV/Monitor will it interfere with the TV channels that I receive.
Channels are not digital as the aerial does not have a good signal.
I don't have an hdmi cable yet to try it so thought that I would ask the question first.

Can not answer first part.

The HDMI will not interfere with your TV channels. Think of the HDMI connection as an update to the older scart connections.

For the first part of your question the following thread should hopefully help

Sadly I don't know enough about cables and PC/TV connections to offer any suggestions but I'm sure somebody will

Looks like this may change the name.

So insted of say Toms Computer I could change it to Harry's computer.
Would that be correct as that is what I am looking for my sons name instead of mine.

Ok Sea Urchin I followed my click here and yours and also changed the user account and everything looks like it is working Ok now with the new name change.

If you are still about are all hdmi cables the same or is there different ones for computers.

Will class as resolved now Thank you both for your help.
