4. Identify Using Windows System Information
If all else fails, you can find my computer specs and the laptop’s model by using Windows System Information. The process is slightly different for each version of Windows you are running. To ensure that you use the correct set of steps, let’s look at each version independently.
This will make things a lot easier on you, and will make more sense for me to tell you. Let’s begin with the most recent version and work our way backward. You can skip down to the version you are using to avoid further confusion.
First, go down to that handy little search bar in the bottom left corner. From here, you want to type in – you guessed it – “System Information”. You will be presented options, so click on “System Information” when it appears.
You should see a little pop-up window. Read until you see a field called “System Model.” Guess what that is? Yep, the model of your system.
With Windows 8, things are quite a bit different. Start by opening up the search option. Now, type in the following characters: “msinfo32”. You should get some search results, one of which is clearly named, “msinfo32”.
Read until you see a field called “Model.” Now you know the model of your laptop. Still no help? You might be using an even earlier version of Windows. Keep reading to find out how to find the model number on your laptop.
Begin by clicking on the start button in the bottom left hand corner of Windows 7. In the search bar that populates, type in “System Information.” You should see a list of results appear after typing it in.
You want to select “System Information.” Now, you’re going to read until you see “System model.” This is the model of your laptop.
