Getting to know the serial number of PC or laptop without having to check it physically

There could be situations where we would not be able to get the serial number of a PC, whose tag would have got erased over time. But that is not the end of the road! We can follow the steps below:

  1. Try to get the serial number from the BIOS Settings.


  1. Log on to the PC as administrator and run the following commands (in the command prompt window) to get the serial number and even the model name of the PC!
    • wmic csproduct get name” (without quotes) will give you the Model of the PC
    • wmic bios get serialnumber” (without quotes) will give you the Serial Number of the PC.

Please make sure that you type these commands either by logging in as an administrator or by running the “cmd.exe” application as an administrator.
