Does anyone have the latest (or one that works) Dell Tech Tools for changing the service tag on dell laptops... I had this on my trusty PNY USB Drive, but it died.   :angry: 

Please, really need this... thanks guys!

There is a second link under the first that may work.

You are so right John,  sorry I forgot to mention -- I have used that Bios Reset Tool.  Unfortunately, I think it's just too old and won't work on newer laptops, I have 7450 Latitude Laptop

 

Thanks again John!

I think the iso you are looking for is about 56MB in size. That one may be hard to find.

John, I believe so,  I heard from one of our system engineers at work and he referenced a Dell Tech CD that was in that size range, ~100mb

Darn,  someone has to have a copy some where...  I really need to change the service tags on 4 Latitude MOBO Laptops   :(

I can't say this is the disk you are looking for but doing some googling suggests it is.

Hmmm,  funny I never thought of looking on eBay!  :kiss:

 

I will reach out to the seller on eBay and see if if will work with the Latitude E7450 Laptops.  The CD he's offering looks like a revision from 2009, so we'll see -

 

Thanks John!  You - Da - Man
