Which HP laptop do you have

Steps

1

Using System Information

  1. 1

    Hold down and press . This will open the "Run" command on any Windows PC.
    • On PCs running Windows 7 or later, you can also right-click the Start menu and then click Run.
  2. 2

    Type into Run. Do so in the search bar to the right of the "Open:" heading.

  3. 3

    Click OK. This will open the Windows System Information utility, which contains details about your specific model of computer.

  4. 4

    Find the "System SKU" section. It's near the middle of the System Information page. The number listed to the right of "System SKU" is your HP laptop's model number.
    • You can also find your computer's product name in this window by looking at the name next to the "System Model" category.
  5. 5

    Write down the SKU number. Providing this information to a tech or using it to inform a search query for drivers or hardware will ensure that your laptop receives pertinent information.[1]

Using the Product Label

  1. 1

    Shut down your laptop. You can do this on any version of Windows by holding down the laptop's power button until the machine turns off.
    • Make sure you save and close all work before doing this.
    • On Windows Vista and up, you can click the Start button in the bottom-left corner of the screen, click the power icon, and click Shut down.
  2. 2

    Unplug your laptop from any power sources. This is to ensure that you don't get shocked when you remove your laptop's battery.

  3. 3

    Turn your laptop over and remove its battery. In most cases, you'll do so by sliding a switch to the left or right, holding it there, and gently sliding the battery out.
    • If there is a sticker on the bottom of your laptop with product information, you may not need to remove the battery.
  4. 4

    Find the "Product" label. Typically, this label will be in a section separate from the "Regulatory" part of the information here. Next to the "Product" label will be a series of numbers and letters; this is your HP laptop's model number.
    • If you can't find "Product", look for a "Serial" heading. While your laptop's model number doesn't correlate to the serial number, it's usually listed somewhere below the serial number.
  5. 5

    Write down the model number. If you're ever trying to get help for your laptop from a technician, providing them with this number will likely speed up the service process.
