I bought a super nice Dell D630 Latitude with just about every option under the sun on it for an extra wonderful price from a broker in GA.
The customer of the broker gave the broker the laptop, and thus I found the broker and he sold the unit to me.
I got the unit in hand and noticed that the tool bag that 1st owned the laptop had erased the Service Tag from the BIOS and removed the sticker on the bottom of the unit with the Service Tag and any other marks that I could use to identify the unit with Dell for warranty purposes. The guy isn't going to give me the service tag and I don't want to give back such a nice laptop for such a good price.
How might I go about finding the service tag on the system...if I can at all?
How did this guy wipe this information off of the system?
