I've just had a quick look through the MS Knowledge Base and there are no details on changing the actual computer details for an XP installation but if all you want to do is change user account names all you have to do is create a new user account in the control panel. From the MS Knowledge base it looks like a reload of the OS to change the other names.

In XP if you press the CTRL/ALT/Delete keys all at the same time you'll get the Task manager up on the screen and it will tell you under Performance how much RAM is actually loaded and working. Note here if you have Video on the M'Board there will be less RAM available for the system as some will be set aside for the video.

For the error message forget about it unless it continues to be displayed it is a common thing for some installations of Windows not to work properly and what the error message is telling you is that a Hex address was unavailable at the time that it was required. If it continues and the system isn't one of the latest you'll need to run the XP Upgrade Adviser available from

This error message will most likely come about because there is a piece of hardware that is not compatible with XP.

Lets know how you get on.

To change the registered name/organization for XP, click Start--Run--type "regedit" (without the quotes)--Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\Current Version--right-click Registered Name--left-click Modify--change the Value data to what you want--click OK. Do the same for Registered Organization.

For Windows 98/ME go to HKEY_Local_Machine\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion

For Windows 2000 go to
