Do you know u can add manufacturers information if you build your own PCs or change the manufacturers information in the system windows which you bought from a vendor.

The “System” window on your PC has a lot of useful information, like your processor model, the amount of installed RAM, what version and edition of Windows you’re running. If you’re using a pre-built PC, the window also shows manufacturer information like the vendor, support number and web site, support hours, and even a logo. You can modify this information, if it’s changed since you bought your PC. Or, if you build your own PCs for family and friends, you can add your own information. All you have to do is go to the Windows Registry.

Change Manufacturer Information by Editing the Registry Manually

To change the manufacturer information for your PC in any version of Windows, you just need to make a few edits in the Windows Registry.

 

Note: Registry Editor is a powerful tool and misusing it can render your system unstable or even inoperable. This is a pretty simple hack and as long as you stick to the instructions, you shouldn’t have any problems.

Open the Registry Editor by hitting Start and typing “regedit.” Press Enter to open Registry Editor and give it permission to make changes to your PC.

 

In the Registry Editor, use the left sidebar to navigate to the following key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\OEMInformation

 

If your PC already has manufacturer information, you’ll see several string values in the OEMInformation key. If your PC doesn’t have these values, you’ll need to add them. You can add the following values:

  • Manufacturer
  • SupportHours
  • Logo
  • SupportPhone
  • SupportURL

 

You don’t have to add all the values—just the ones you want to show up. To add a value, right-click the OEMInformation key and choose New > String Value. Name the new value using one of the names from the list and make sure it’s named exactly as shown, with no spaces.


When you have the values added that want (or if they were already present), double-click each value to open its properties window, type the information you want displayed into the “Value data” box, and then click “OK.” If you’re replacing information, you may want to write down the information you’re removing so that you can put things back the way they were if the need arises.

 

If you’re adding a logo, just type the full path to the image you want to use. Alternatively, if the value already exists and you want to use the current path, you can leave the value at its default, which is typically:

C:\Windows\System32\oemlogo.bmp

Then all you have to do is replace that file with a picture of your own that’s named the same. To replace the file, you’ll need to have administrative privileges on the PC since it’s in a system folder. For the best results, you’ll want to use a small logo picture—around 100×100 pixels.

When you’ve added the information you want, you can close Registry Editor. The changes will take place immediately, so no need to restart your PC. All the information you entered should now show up in the “System” window.

If you ever want to remove the the changes, just go back to the OEMInformation key and delete all the values except for the (Default) value. If you want to restore information that was previously there, you’ll need to change each value to put the old information back.
