Ipconfig / Flushdns , successful but not helpful

I have windows7 computer [not joined to he domain] that has changed the IP address.
 from my computer if I ping Windows7 computer it will still try to reach the old IP Address
C:\Users\Administrator.TEST>ping windows7

Pinging windows7.Test.local [192.168.254.166] with 32 bytes of data:

However if I ping by the new IP and with -a  switch it will ping successfully.
