Using System Information
If you are using System Information to check your HP laptop model, here are a couple of steps you should follow. First, you should start the option “Run”. You can find it on the Start menu. There will be shown a window where you need to type “msinfo32” and then press OK. Doing so, you will get to the Windows System Information utility, where you are going to see all about your HP laptop model.
Another way to find out about your laptop model is to press types “Fn” and “Esc” on your keyboard. It is a shortcut to HP System Information. The window that opens will show you a lot of information. As you are seeking for the model name and number, you should find the section named Product Number. The number should contain the “#” sign, and that is how you will recognize the right information about what you are looking for.
HP Support Assistant
A great way to get the information about the model of your HP laptop is to have the HP Support Assistance. This is a software that helps you with any questions about your HP device, and when you open it, it shows your model number as well as the other information.
Look under the battery
If your laptop has a removable battery, you should take it out from the case and look for the model number. There should be a label with information on it. It also can be placed at the battery itself. You are looking for the sign “P/N”. This mark says that you have the right model number in front of you.
Look at the bottom of the laptop
Many HP laptops have the label with the model number on the bottom. Looking for the model name and number you should see a “P/N” sign, same as one under the battery. Make sure that you turn your laptop upside-down of the soft surface so it doesn’t break. These labels we are talking about are mostly white or silver.
If any of these solutions don’t work for you, you may need to open your laptop’s bottom case. If you need to do so, turn your device off and remove the battery. Take a small screwdriver and remove perimeter screws slowly. Put them on the safe place, and gently lift up your laptop’s bottom.
In the left corner, you are going to see the label with the laptop’s model name and number and other specs. There should be a “P/N” prefix.
When you get the information you needed, close up the laptop and check if you have done it properly before turning it on again.
