Q: I need help Finding the manufacture date from the service tag number

I am trying to find the manufacture date for pcs that I cannot physically look at, but have the service tag numbers. Is there an link other than looking at the warranty. That only shows the ship date, not manufacture date. Thanks!

Preferred Solution: I need help Finding the manufacture date from the service tag number

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: I need help Finding the manufacture date from the service tag number

The shipping date is essentially the same as the manufacturing date - bear in mind that in recent years, Dell systems are built under contract with ODMs (Foxconn, Pegatron, Wistron, etc). Dell hasn't manufactured systems itself in years - so the ship date is all there is.

Hi! Does anyone know what is the format of the date in the field "(battery) Manufacture Date" informed by Lenovo Vantage (Hardware Configuration > Energy)? It seems not to follow Windows setting. In my case, it is set to Brazilian Portuguese DD/MM/YYYY, but there is not a leading "0" in the returned value (see attached image). Does it really disregard the Windows setting and presents it in a fixed format (maybe American English)? When was my battery manufactured (Oct. 07 or July 10)?Thanks in advance.

Is there a website that lists the manufacture/release date of various brandname video cards ?

I want to know which video card is "newer" than the others and in what order (date wise) were the cards released. In this manner I can learn what model has the latest technology vs a previous model.

Surfing eBay and trying to decide which card is newer than the others is impossible and reviewing the ATI and NVidia websites doesn't help either (unless I've overlooked one of their webpages that provides the info I am seeking).

Can anyone help ?

One of my hard drives just failed after years of reliable service. A lot of valuable information was lost.

To avoid this in the future, it would be helpful to know just how old a drive is to know when it's time to be replaced.

Is there a program that can tell me when I drive was manufactured?

A:A program that shows Manufacture date?

Drive age doesn't really have much to do with 'drive failures'. Time in service increases the risk, but it's not a defining factor either.

The HDD should have a sticker on it showing date of manufacture. I don't know of a program.

A blockchain,originally block chain,is a growing list of records, called blocks, which are linked using cryptography. Each block contains a cryptographic hash of the previous block, a timestamp, and transaction data (generally represented as a Merkle tree).

By design, a blockchain is resistant to modification of the data. It is "an open, distributed ledger that can record transactions between two parties efficiently and in a verifiable and permanent way". For use as a distributed ledger, a blockchain
is typically managed by a peer-to-peer network collectively adhering to a protocol for inter-node communication and validating new blocks. Once recorded, the data in any given block cannot be altered retroactively without 

The block time is the average time it takes for the network to generate one extra block in the blockchain. Some blockchains create a new block as frequently as every five seconds. By the time of block completion, the included data becomes verifiable. In cryptocurrency,
this is practically when the transaction takes place, so a shorter block time means faster transactions. The block time for Ethereum is set to between 14 and 15 seconds, while for bitcoin it is 10 minutes

I have had my Inspiron 15 3000 series since the end of August and was liking it until is started beeping a few weeks ago - sounds like a truck backing up.  It does it 5 times and repeats 3 times when starting up.    I tried online support but you cannot get anywhere until you enter your service tag number or express service code neither are recognized.  I tried calling support but they could not identify my computer with the numbers either (I took pictures of them on my tablet and made them larger so I know they are right).   I purchased my laptop on line. Initially there was a message about the power source, but I have popped my battery out and  back in and the error message no longer pops up but is still beeps.   I am at a complete loss as to what to do at this point and am incredibly frustrated.

I have a Word 97 document with close to 300 references. This is set up as a table with two columns. The first column identifies each reference in consecutive numerical order, merely as a means of listing the references - no significance to references.

I have been unable to get the Find command the take me to eg. reference number 80. It appears not to recognise the numbers in the first column and it will take me to an item within the second column that may have a number 80 involved.

I have connected a friend's iPhone to my PC, so that I can copy some photos taken between particular dates (03-Feb-19 to 20-Feb-19). But there are many photos there, taken on many dates and spread across a large number of sub-folders of the DCIM folder. Plus the file creation dates are not always easy to organise. Putting that column in date order in Windows Explorer doesn't always put the dates in date order...

Is there a file finder which can find those files reliably?

can anybody help me out?

A:Finding Date of creation?

Probably not the RIGHT way to do it, but since you know how to read files, you can output the dir command's results for the file, to a tempfile and then read it.

#include <cstdlib>
system("dir /TC filename.ext > tempfile.ext");

Then the first 10 characters on the 6th line of the temp file will be the created date.

I just started a job doing desktop support, mostly for medical records software. My boss is out and I am to install office 2010 professional plus on a few different peoples computers and do not want to look stupid if one doesn't work. We have already installed it on multiple computers. I belioeve it is a volume liscense

My question is, is there a way I can run the key to see how many installs are left on that key?

A:Finding out the number of remaining installs on a key

No - the general rule is ONE KEY = ONE INSTALL
It makes no difference whether the install is on bare metal, or a VM - unless you have a Volume License, then a Key can ONLY be used ONCE, on the system on which it is installed.

A Retaill Key can be moved - but ONLY if the original installation no longer exists.
An OEM Key cannot be moved.
A Volume License Key cannot be moved - a new computer/motherboard will ALWAYS consume one of the Licenses.

I'm sure it's simple but I'm struggling to work out how to get the second date in a series in Access. I have a list of customers and the dates they have been seen - I also have a table which works out the first date in the series I can't see how, it's something I've just got to use!). Is there a relatively simple expression which would find the next date after that one/the second in the series?


A:Access - Finding second date in a series

sazzra, welcome to the Forum.
I am afraid you are wrong, it is not simple, which is why you are struggling.
I think it can be done with 2 Queries, one to find the first date and then one to ignore the first date and find the second.
However can you be more precise about the date position, when you say the frist date in a series, do you mean the "Earliest date" or the "Latest date" as being "first"?

I downloaded a 14 day trial Nitro Pro PDF fillable program. Doing straight basic calculations was not a problem. The only thing that I am having difficulty doing is trying to write a Java Script code to determine the number of days between 2 dates. The dates are not fixed. They are variable. They are of the form mm/dd/yyyy. I used this format in the date fields. I have two date fields on my fillable form called "FirstDate" and "LastDate". The third field I have called "NoOfDays". This field is a number field. This is where the result is supposed to be calculated.

I used this Java Script Code but I keep getting errors. I no nothing about Java Script. I found the following code on the internet but obviously it is not the correct one.

this.getField("NoOfDays").Value = this.getField("LastDate").Value - this.getField("FirstDate").Value

If anyone out there has experience with Java and with fillable PDF files and more specifically with Nitro Pro please help me to figure this out.

Thanks for any help.

A:Excel: Calculate Number of months from a specified date

Place the following formula in cell C1. Cell A1 contains the first date and Cell B1 contains the second date. "M" stands for month. You can replace "M" with "D" for days or "Y" for years. Both formulas return the number of COMPLETE months or units between the dates. Would you need to consider any extra days left over between dates after comparing them or do you just want to know the number of whole months between?

It seems that file backup software resets the file created date to the date of the backup; in this case the critical files are .CAD (AutoCad) files, and I need to know when the project began. It was several years ago, and I do not recall the backup programs that were used, and old HDs were wiped; recovery attempts indicate - no .CAD files or fragments. Is there a way to find or restore the original file created date...?

A:restoring, or finding. the original 'file created' date

Try right clicking on the file, click on properties, and you should see the create date, as well as the last modify and access dates. This works for many types of files, although I don't know about .cad files. I use Ghost for backup, and it shows the last date modified by me, not the software (right click/properties is not available for the backup file).

If you don't have the file on your computer separate from the backup copy, depending on your backup software, you might be able to restore the file to a different location so as not to overwrite you current copy, then look at its properties.

Problem Summary:
How do I ensure the number and date formatting of my data is maintained when I merge it in the Word document?

Problem Background:
I have created a mail merge document in Word 2003, which uses data from and Excel 2003 spreadsheet. The dates in the spreadsheet are expressed in this format: dd/mm/yy. The amount in the spreadsheet is expressed in this format: $2,200.

When I do the mail merge the dates in the Word document change to mm/dd/yy format, and the amount changes to 2200 format without a comma or $ sign. Note I have already checked the date format on my computer, and that is fine.

Note that when I add an apostrophe to the date data in Excel, then the data gets merged correctly, but surely I shouldn't have to do this.

I'm using Word 2003 and Excel 2003 and Windows XP.

Any help much apppreciated!


A:Mail merge not keeping date & number format

Toggle to the merge field view by toggling the Alt+F9 key. Go to the fields you are trying to merge and you can edit the fields formatting there. For the date you can change it from {MERGEFIELD fieldname} to {MERGEFIELD fieldname \@ dd/mm/yy} and your currency field to {MERGEFIELD fieldname \# "$,0.00}

I'm hoping Macropod sees this because I downloaded the WORD Date & Time Manipulation document and have read it from beginning to end.

I have inserted the DATE field on page 1, section 1 in the footer.

On page 2, section 2 I modified Macropod's field as follows (I can't find a way to copy the field as text - tried a few macros I found online):

I set the delay like this: {SET Delay{={PAGE}-1}}

For reasons unknown, on page two this set day to be three days into the future, so I changed it to {PAGE}-3

It's perfect on page two, but shows the same date on all subsequent pages.

Thank you in advance
