    Look at the back of the PC's, thats where the SN is recorded. Unless
    it's a laptop, then you can look on the bottom. If you "made other
    arangements" for SN recording, then more options are available.

    Software can't read stickers on the back of a machine. That is
    where Bob's "If you made other arrangements" clause comes into
    the picture.

    If you neither your nor the manufacturer did nothing to put the
    serial numbers "into" the machines where it can be accessed by
    software, then obviously there is nothing you can do by software
    to read the serial numbers.

    If you only have a few dozen machines, then you should resign
    yourself to going to each machine, reading each number, and
    manually inputting it into whatever records you are creating. If
    you have a few hundred machines, then you should consider the
    purchase of a bar code reader.
