How to get Dell Service Express Code number on Windows 2000 Server

Posted on 2004-03-24

Can anyone tell how to get the Dell Service Express Code number on a Dell machine from Terminal Services.  The server itself is in a different location and I need that service number.

I've noticed on sites like HP they can do a scan of your computer, did you see anything like that on the dell support site? I checked the dell site for downloads, and it has an option to find your service tag: https://support.dell.com/productselection.aspx

Also you can check in start > programs > accessories > system tools > system information - may have information on your service number as well. Let me know how it works for you.

I tried to find it in windows with no luck.  I think it's in the BIOS setup but I can not get to that from terminal services.

Do you have access to any Dell Resource CD's?  They have a tool on there that you might be able to use.  As Justin said, you should be able to use the support website as well .  also in Support Downloads, you can find the express service code finder file.
