Do you still have Windows on the machine? If so run:   wmic baseboard get product,Manufacturer,version,serialnumber    from the Windows console. Otherwise you may have to find the asset tag on the box or internally. Brand name OEMs often tie the two together making difficulty for Linux decoding. Can you get to the onboard BIOS screen?

DELL call them "Service TAG".
