Default Is this a Dell service tag??

image-1474211834.jpg

This sticker is stuck on the back of my DELL 2408WFP Which was manufactured in Sept 2008

Dell will not accept any of those numbers on that sticker as a service tag.. What is wrong?

I found this Dell | Dell, Dell have a utility that scans your system for the tag Dell - Support but it requires you to use Internet Explorer..

Every Dell I've seen has a sticker with the service tag clearly marked (it says "Service Tag: XXXXXXX). A seven character code is what you're looking for....

It's listed in BIOS as well, provided you can boot it into BIOS...

How can the dell utility scan my MONITOR? Surely that utility only scans your PC for its service tag?

Monitors

The service tag label can be found on the back of the monitors (Figure 2)

I beleive that code would be the "express service code". It might work it might not, just a thought.
