Stolen Laptop; Need to find serial number

This question is not answered

My laptop was recently stolen out of my car and the police need the serial number to help maybe locate the laptop, but I don't know the serial number. I have the service tag number and the express service code. Is there anyway to get the actual serial number?

  • Could it be on your Bill/Receipt of purchase?

  • i've looked and its not on there

  • Did you get any service Booklet with your laptop? That's the only other place I can think of.

  • i might have but i don't know. i bought the laptop 3 years ago and would have no idea where any of the books for it would be

  • Hi,

    Welcome to the Community. There is no serial number on a Dell Computer. Dell systems go by the Service tag and the Express service code. You will need to give them the Service Tag of the computer.

    Thank you

    The service tag number is the serial number. Once reported to police and you have a case number, then Dell Report a Stolen System

     

    If the computer had LoJack installed, LoJack Report a Theft

  • The service tag number IS the serial number.
