|Thanks for the reply StuartS... however, the question was not "what the best rating of my computer skills" IE:(novice) |
but, how to clear the company name from the BIOS.
I noticed that you did not answer the question, so that leads me to believe you do not know the answer. (E for Effort!!)
I will research this on my own, find the answer to the original question and post the answer to help other "novices" like myself.
BTW, even though I have a career in IT, does not mean I know everything...
Here is the answer to the original question...
Go to ftp://ftp.us.dell.com/utility/asset.com and download asset.com
You need to create a bootup CD or Floppy disk
The asset.com file needs to be on the bootup floppy or CD
Boot your computer from the floppy or CD
Once the computer is finished booting from the CD or Floppy and you get to the command prompt, type in:
asset /o /d (this deletes the Service Tag name from BIOS)
asset /d (this deletes the Asset Tag name from BIOS)
THIS WAS ON A DELL COMPUTER AND I DID NOT RESEARCH IF THIS WILL WORK ON OTHER PC's
