Use This

Private Const MAX_COMPUTERNAME_LENGTH As Long = 31
Private Declare Function GetComputerName Lib "kernel32" Alias "GetComputerNameA" (ByVal lpBuffer As String, nSize As Long) As Long
Private Sub Form_Load()
    Dim dwLen As Long
    Dim strString As String
    'Create a buffer
    dwLen = MAX_COMPUTERNAME_LENGTH + 1
    strString = String(dwLen, "X")
    'Get the computer name
    GetComputerName strString, dwLen
    'get only the actual data
    strString = Left(strString, dwLen)
    'Show the computer name
    MsgBox strString
End Sub

Public Declare Function GetComputerName Lib "kernel32.dll" Alias "GetComputerNameA" (ByVal lpBuffer As String, nSize As Long) As Long

Private Sub GetCompName()
Dim CompName As String
Dim retVal   As String

'-- Set a large buffer for the computer name
CompName = Space(255)

'-- Get the computer's name
retVal = GetComputerName(CompName, 255)

'-- Remove the trailing null character from the strong
CompName = Left(CompName, InStr(CompName, vbNullChar) - 1)
Debug.Print CompName

End Sub
