I think you got the right forum this time :) The admins are very anal about keeping the topics in the right forums...mass chaos and worldwide descruction may ensue if a topic is left in the wrong forum for too long.
ANYWHO, to answer your question:

Hold down the windows key and the pause/break button at the same time...that will bring up the system properties. If that doesn't work for you, right click on "my computer" and goto properties...that will also bring up the system properties.
Click on the second tab over that says "computer name"...you should be able to figure it out from there.

Hope that helps you out.
