Hi,

I have a Latitude C600 and have just had a new motherboard, The bios
is A23 and the Service Tag is reset to FIELDxx :( 

Can i set it to the Service tag on my case?

I have the asset program and tried asset /s xxxxxxx (my Service Tag)
however it says,

a:\ asset /s xxxxxxx
ASSET -- Version 2.01 (C) Copyright 1993 - 2000 Dell Computer Corp
About to change the Service Tag. Are you sure? [y,n]
(I enter y)
BEEP
Error: Cannot change the Service Tag.
Please ensure the tag is in a correct format, and the SETUP password
is disabled.

I did check the code and the password, all ok, so guys, any ideas?

I also tried to delete the Service Tag first (asset /s /d) dit the
same stuff as trying to set it and the exact same error....

Have i missed something?

email - drew.Johnstone@btSPAMconnect.com - remove SPAM

All help greatly appriciated :) 

Cheers

Drew

1) Is it a Dell motherboard?

2) If so, are you sure *all* passwords have been disabled?

The only thing I can think of is that your copy of asset.com
isn't any good... I'll send you the copy that I used.

If it's your BIOS password, look for a reset button underneath. If there isn't one, pull the battery for a minute.
