Link 2[^]
In addition to this, another way is to do reverse IP lookup if this is a intranet machine.

You can Try this, but this will work on Internet Explorer:

<script type="text/javascript">
function GetComputerName()
        var network = new ActiveXObject('WScript.Network');
        // Show a pop up if it works
    catch (e) { }
<body onload="GetComputerName()"></body>

hope it helps :)
