If the correct password is not entered in three attempts, the computer tries to boot from another bootable
device if the Boot First device option in the
device option is not set to allow booting from another device, the computer returns to the state it was in
when you turned it on—suspend or standby mode.
NOTES: If the hard-disk drive password, the modular hard-disk drive password, and the primary
password are the same, you are prompted only for the primary password. If the hard-disk drive
password is different from the primary password, you are prompted for both. Two different passwords
provide greater security.
The administrator password provides access to the system, but it does not provide access to the
hard-disk drive when it is protected by a password.
Assigning an Asset Tag
The Asset Tag utility allows you to enter an asset tag number that you or your company assigns to the
computer. The default system setup screens do not show the asset tag number unless you enter one by
using this utility.
You can also use the Asset Tag utility to enter an owner tag that appears in the system log-on screen and
with the primary password prompt.
Viewing Existing Asset Tag and Service Numbers
To view existing asset tag and service tag numbers, perform the following steps:
1. Boot the computer from a bootable diskette or CD-ROM.
2. Type cd c:\Dell\Util and press <Enter>.
3. Type asset and press <Enter>.
Assigning an Asset Tag Number
An asset tag number can have up to ten characters; any combination of characters excluding spaces is valid.
To assign or change an asset tag number, perform the following steps:
1. Boot the computer from a bootable diskette or CD-ROM.
2. Type cd c:\Dell\Util and press <Enter>.
3. Type asset and a space followed by the new number, and press <Enter>.
For example, type the following command line and press <Enter>:
asset 1234$ABCD&
4. When the system prompts you to verify the asset tag number, type y and press <Enter>.
The system displays the new or modified asset tag number and the service tag number.
