This is part of your registry. You can edit it with regedit.exe.
Look for the key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion
That's where it's all defined. Change it to what they want to hear ;-)
Good luck,
Henrie.

By the way, please make a backup before editing the registry if your not familiar with it.

Just highlight "CurrentVersion" and on the right half of the screen you see all the info. Look for "RegisteredOrganization" and "RegisteredOwner" keys.
If you can't find them, go to the top of the tree and do a search with Ctrl-F for "RegisteredOwner" (without the quotes).

Let me know if it didn't work,

Good luck,
Henrie.

Just found one file with mfg. info. It's located in your Windows\System folder and it's called OEMINFO.INI.
If you don't have one make one with notepad. It contains something as follows:
----


[general]
Manufacturer=Toshiba
Model=<your model, ie. CDT410>

[OEMSpecific]
SubModel=<submodel?>
SerialNo=<your serialnr>
OEM1=
OEM2=

[Support Information]
Line1=<call support number>
Line2=
Line3=
Line5=
Line6=
Line7=
Line8=
Line10=


----
I think this is what you were looking for...

CU,
Henrie.

If you really want to know the contents, we have about 20 Toshiba portables, some different models. Let me know your Toshiba type number and I'll copy it for you.
