    Sometimes the actual serial number is under the battery, but generally all you need is the Service Tag (on the bottom) when dealing with Dell.

    it is on a small sticker on the bottom of the computer, smaller than that of Microsoft COA. You can find there the service tag and the express service code. you can also check for the service tag in BIOS (press F2 during startup) and you can also check for express service code in start - programs - dell accessories - express service code

    I actually need it because I am selling it. I need the info for a contract form. Is the Service Tag good enough?

    Service Tag is specific to Dell. You better note down the actual serial number not only for the system but also the battery and any other part that is included with the system.

    Assuming you can boot up into windows, the free Belarc Advisor software is also very useful for retrieving Service Tag and Serial Number as well as lots of hardware and software information.....

    If not clearly specified on the outside, it is usually is underneath the battery.
