Not sure if these should be green or not!\015\012\015\012Any suggestions?\015

\015\012Good news, Dell has lifetime phone support for their servers.
\015\012
\015\012Write down the Express Service Code and Service Tag number that is on the server chassis and call Dell.
\015\012This is the last number I used for server support: (800) 945-3355
\015\012If it doesn't work you should be able to find a valid number at support.dell.com
