If you go to DOS, and run a systeminfo command, does t appear in the output?
Alternatively, try psinfo to run the command on a flat file of all the pc names, and output it to a file....Dont know if it picks up the sn though...

PsInfo v1.74

Take a look at...  http://www.spiceworks.com

...it's easy to install and free. It will scan your network and capture service tags plus a lot more.  I also have a script that will grab the service tag off a single box but I expect spiceworks may be a better solution for you.

Here's a vbs script that will do it. Combine with psexec to run remotley....

on error resume next
strComputer = "."
Set objWMIservice = GetObject("winmgmts:\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
set colitems = objWMIservice.ExecQuery("Select * from Win32_BIOS",,48)
For each objitem in colitems
    Wscript.echo "Dell Service Tag: " & objitem.serialnumber
Next


set colItems2 = objWMIService.ExecQuery("Select * from Win32_ComputerSystem",,48)
For Each objItem2 in colItems2
    Wscript.Echo "Dell Model  Name: " & objItem2.Model
Next

1. Put the script I posted in a file call it stag.vbs
2. Copy stag,vbs to a remote pc under c:\
3. In a command window run... psexec \\remote-pc-name cmd /c  cscript.exe c:\\stag.vbs

Also it would seem you can export...from spiceworks web page...

In spiceworks you can export to excel but I do not think directly to text no.
