How to: locate product numbers and serial numbers on HP and Dell computerson July 28, 2012 at 20:01

If you run Dell machines, you need the Dell asset tags in order to get warranty.
As it turns out, many times you’ll be no where near your computers but have remote access (hopefully). So how can you get either the HP Serial Number or the Dell Asset tag remotely? Read on.
For both cases you need to open a command prompt: many of you should be familiar with this, if not, goto the Start menu and type in ‘CMD’ to bring up the familiar black DOS prompt.
See the below table to obtain the corresponding information on the right:
||HP: shows Serial Number, Dell: shows Dell Asset tag|
||HP: shows model name: Dell: shows base model|
||HP: shows product number, Dell – nothing man, just nothing|
This handy spot of information might come in handy for you one day if your ILO or Dell Open Manage software isn’t installed.
