Dell latitude d600 service tag removal

Dec 26, 2005
  1. I have just bough a used Dell latitude d600 for my daughter for chirstmass from ebay. There is only one problem and I can't seem to fix it. Who ever had it before me has put the service tag to something very inapproiate. I would like to remove it so she does not see it. I was told by dell that since I do not have a legitimate service tag hey can not help me. Other people told me I could use svctag.exe or asset.exe from dell but they do not help. Does anyone have the program or programs I need to remove it and can send it to mel If so please post a link or tell me where to go to get it. I would be greatfull.


    EDIT I HAVE THE ISO LINKED ITS ON PAGE TWO...PLEASE READ BEFORE MESSAGING ME :)

    What does this mean?

    Besides wherever else it is, the service tag is in the BIOS. I don't see how you can remove it. Is this laptop stolen?

    No its not stolen I bought it from ebay. The service tag in bios is a inapporiate word spelled in leet, my best bet is the person that owned it before me just put in for fun. But I do not want that in there since its my daughter's laptop. I tried the service tag and assest files from dell's site but they can't change it. Dell said they can not help me since the service tag is not a valid one. So I am here asking for help. I was told there is a program that will change it but I don't know where to get it or what its called. I was also told I can short something and make it go away. If anyone can help me with either way for this laptop model I would be gratefull. If you know the way to short it please step by step me on it.

    Heh. I didn't mean to imply that YOU stole it. :) I read where you said you bought it on Ebay. Anyway, perhaps someone else knows of the program of which you speak.

    BTW, the asset tag is not the same as the service tag. In the BIOS both are listed. So programs for the asset tag are for things like company inventory numbers, I think.
