Finding user by computer serial number

Hi ,

My guys have receive this order for a PC for a user and I updated in my inventory database base on serial number of the PC. But months later, 1 of my guy spotted the user still with the old PC.
I have search practically everywhere for the the particular PC base on the serial number.
Is there a freeware that I can quietly search for that particular serial number on the network without alarming any other department.  Or is there a script where I can run on my PC  and search the serial number. I wish to find the PC out before the audit comes and I do not wish to escalate the problem to higher management.

thanks for your help

H Shasunder,

I had written similar script before, but the script that I wrote requires me to broadcast to all the users in my email. and each individual user to execute the script on their computer.  Is there a way I can "secretly" sniff their computer detail's without them acknowledgement? As I have over 500 users over here, and I had did 1 round of major broadcasting of the emails before the arrival of this lost PC.

Thanks alot.
