Every operating system has a serial number and it must that it has because it will identify your device. Let me clarify for you with an example, when you download any kind of driver with the help of a serial number you can find that driver and you are not going to search for it on YouTube to find it. There are operating systems whose serial number is written on the back side of their laptop but if you check an HP laptop then mostly you will fail to find the serial number.
But instead of that, we have a command which we have to paste in Command Prompt (CMD) and will give the serial number of your Laptop. We have several ways to find the serial number and try one by one each way if any of them does not work.
Basically, we have two kinds of serial numbers Numeric and Alphanumeric. Numeric means that the serial number only contains numbers and then Alphanumeric consists of both letters and numbers. It does not matter if the serial number should contain alphabets and numbers.
Method 1. Find Your Laptop Serial Number Via CMD
Let’s start with the easy and quick method to find serial numbers. As I mentioned in the heading we are going to use Command Prompt (CMD) and you have to paste the command as given to you. This method will work on many operating systems like HP, Acer, Dell, Lenovo, and more.
Step 1. First of all, launch the CMD and don’t forget to run your Command Prompt as administrator, or you can press and hold on Windows Key + R to launch Run after that type CMD and then click on the Ok. You can also use Terminal or PowerShell the command will work.

Again when you did not get your serial number and then there is a reason why it didn’t work after executing the command. After executing the command if you face errors such as a blank and empty page or more errors then you have to understand that it means that the creator of the Laptop did not add the serial number to your Laptop operating system’s BIOS.
