    System informations not updating after swapping SSD


    Hi everyone,

    I have a laptop that came with a regular HDD. I decided to put an SSD in it instead and install Windows 10 on it. From there, everything went right. The problem is that I just bought a new desktop and I decided to put the laptop's SSD in the desktop. I had to insert a new Windows 10 key obviously because Windows didn't recognize this new system. The only problem is that when I go into the computer system informations, the model that is there is the model of the laptop. I know it's not a big problem but I was wondering if there was any refresh I could do beside resetting the computer.

    I'll highlight which part I am talking about in a screenshot.

    The other informations are fine, only the highlighted part is wrong.

    Thanks for the help everyone and have a great day!

    It should be in the registry:

    1. Run regedit
    2. Go to Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\OEMInformation
    3. Modify/delete the Model key.

    Try changing the System Properties in Device Manager. But it still may not work. It may have to be done manually in the registry.

    You need to do a clean install.

    Why did you put a 5400 RPM Laptop hard drive into a desktop PC ?

    Didn`t the new desktop come with a Operating System drive already installed ?

    No. Itís a SSD iíve installed in it myself. And thatís the OS the laptop came in because I made a recovery drive from the original HDD on the laptop then installed it on the SSD.

    Thanks for your input but I donít believe the name is faulty here as the name of the pc is the one where it says PC-Vino just under the model Iím talking about 😊

    I thought we were talking about the hard drive you removed from the laptop and put in the desktop ??????
    Yes. Itís a SSD that was originally installed by me in my laptop that I removed from the said laptop and installed into the desktop.

    PC-Vino is the Volume Label of your C-Drive. In this case, right click on C-Drive->Property and change the Label.

    OK so the PC name is fine, and this is what you want to change, correct ?

    I don`t know where you would obtain that information from.
    See my last comment I you posted minutes ago. You don't seem to have that part on yours though...
