Ian,Thank you for visiting DELLTalk.You can download a Dell System Utility package that has the Asset.com file for setting the tag ID in BIOS. This file can be downloaded here.
Well, if you want the service tag, there is an app named SM_INFO.EXE that runs in Windows NT/2000/XP/2003 environments.
Started using this resently to autocapture the service tags as we put new systems on our network via a MSIF driven unattended process. Developed the script below to capture/isolate the service tag into a variable for later conditional processing, and thought others might find this useful. Script assumes Dos 6.22. Requires change.exe from/complements of MSIF process.
<< SERVCTAG.BAT >>

Will that version work with Win XP on a Precision 530??
Sorry to jump in here, but I own an Inspiron 5100 running Windows XP. When I recently had my mother replaced because of a hardware issue, the rep did not and said that he could NOT update my Service Tag. I have the contents of the floppy on my desktop computer; however, I have been unable to make it into a bootable floppy for my laptop. When I tried to do so, it did not work. Is there something that I am missing here. Also, how I get this changed in some other way? Thank you for your help.
P.S. asset.com was included in the disk that Dell service rep left me. I see that you recommend another app. How do I get Dell to send this to me? I do not have a CD called, "Dell Resource CD." I only have 2 CD's for drivers, etc. Where I can find the necessary CD's and instruction to show me how to do this?
Thank you in advance!
