Hi:
I got a brand new PC with XP and completed 'hard-wired' networking
connection
after having un-hooked from the back of the PC with Vista.

Everything went smooth and Connection has NO issue at all.

However, I'm getting the following 'error message' at the right bottom
of the corner of System Tray.

"Windows - System Error,
A duplicate name exists on the network.'

Wonder why I'm getting this, error message?

Also, how to get rid of this, annoying 'error message?'

Thanks in advance for any help.

Every PC on a network must have a uique name. No two can have the
same name

Hi
Log in each computer to Control Panel/System.
Take a look at each computer name.
If there is duplicate click on Change (to the left) and change the duplicate
computer name.

Thanks for the responses.

In my very haste after the purchase, I just forgot giving a proper
name for a brand new machine. But, after all, everything is OK
running very smooth, for that I truly feel very grateful. There is
no 'System error' message popping up at the right bottom of
System Tray.

Thanks again.
