Windows 7: Computer name resolving wrong IP

Computer name resolving wrong IP

I've got a question. I have a computer running windows 7 64 bit, Home Premium.
The computer name is "Laptop", verified in Computer -> Properties. I have another computer whose name is "Machine-A". For some weird reason, whenever I do "ping Machine-A" on the command line, it would return pinging from 127.0.0.1 . Why does it think "Machine-A" is the computer name?
I did "ipconfig /flushdns", and didn't work. Then I did "ipconfig /flushdns" then "ipconfig /registerdns" and did not fix the problem. I need help. Thanks

The 127.0.0.1 is windows host file.

I'm not sure what is up with the names, can't see much from here.

The ipconfig/all might be of more value.
