HP Compaq 6200 Pro MT PC: SN number error

Hi.

 

I have just replaced a motherboard on a HP Compaq 6200 Pro MT PC.

The issue is that, once  replaced it get an error "invalid electronic serial number"

I have tried the set this in the BIOS, but their is no option.

I am aware that there is a DMI tool for laptop's to set these settings, is there one for PC's?

 

Regards

Hi, Tyzer:

 

See if this works...

 

After entering BIOS Setup by hitting the F10 key, press Ctrl+A to open additonal fields in Security>System IDs menu.

 

Enter your PC's serial number in Asset Tag Number and Chassis Serial Number fields.

 

Save changes there and again when you exit the BIOS.
