Hi,

Is there any way to find the laptop serial number which is in the network or is there any way find the laptop serial number last when it was in the network.

I just need a tool in which i have to kee in the laptop serial number and it should show me the details of the laptop along with network details, like i have to find the laptop which is not in my inventory

In brief one the laptop is missing from my inventory, so i have only the serial number  but i have to find which user is using that laptop, so i need a tool in which i will keee in the laptop serial number and it should give me the user and ip address details .
 

Pls let me know if any such software or asset tool available or any good customized excel sheet for maintaining the asset inventory.

When you say Serial Number, what exactly do you mean?

Here is a script that I used to recover Dell Service Tags

Dell Service Tag
script:
'
on error resume next
strComputer=WScript.Arguments.Item(0)
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
'

copy the above to a *.vbs file
run with
cscript <filename>.vbs <PCname>

or, you'll have to build in a similar query into your login script, and then check the logs...
