It does not matter if it is a HP, Dell, Lenovo, Toshiba, Asus, if you need the basic information of your computer and you cannot find the manufacturer’s label, in this post we will see 3 ways of how to know the model of your PC or laptop in Windows 10.
In addition to the sticker on your laptop or desktop, Windows 10 includes several ways to find the model number and serial number (also known as a “service tag”). This information can be obtained using System Information, Command Prompt, and PowerShell. Then follow one of these three methods and their steps to find the model of your computer.
How to know the model of your PC with the System Information
If I want to know the model of my laptop or desktop PC, the most direct and easy way is using the System Information:
# 1. Type system information in Start and choose the main result to open the application.
# 2. Then select System Summary in the left column, and on the right you will see your PC model in the System Model field .
With these two simple steps, you will quickly find the device model, regardless of whether it is a desktop PC, laptop, notebook or tablet. But let’s look at other methods in the next two sections.
How to check device model using command prompt
Another good way to find out the model number of your laptop or desktop is through the Command Prompt:
# 1. Open Start, type Command Prompt, and click the main result to open the console.
# 2. Type the following command to get the desktop or laptop model:
wmic csproduct get name
# 3. Hit the Enter key .
It will immediately provide you with the model number information of the computer. But if in addition to this you want to obtain the serial number, type the following command and press Enter:
wmic csproduct get name, identifyingnumber
As you can see in the previous image, the command will allow you to know the serial number next to the model of your equipment.
Know the model of my laptop or PC using PowerShell
To view your computer model with PowerShell, follow these steps:
# 1. Open the Start menu, search for PowerShell and click the main result to open the console.
# 2. Enter the following command to verify the model and serial number of your device:
Get-CimInstance -ClassName Win32_ComputerSystem
# 3. Hit the Enter key .
Confirm the model number of the device.
With the following command you can verify the model and serial number:
Get-CimInstance -ClassName Win32_bios
After completing the steps, the commands will display the model number as well as the serial number of your Windows 10 computer.
In many situations you will need to know the model or serial number of your computer. For example, when you need to update or replace a component; if you are solving a problem and need to contact technical support; or to identify the device for inventory purposes.
Although this guide is oriented on Windows 10, but you can also use these steps on Windows 8. In the case of Windows 7, you can use the System Information and Command Prompt methods. It does not matter if it is a laptop, notebook, tablet or desktop PC.
