Knowing your system information can come in handy when filling out some survey forms for your product or just keeping it in hand for future references. The make of your product is given by the computer model, and the specifications of your system depend on the model as well.
You will also need the information if something wrong happens to your system and you need to contact the service center as the information and help provided to you will be based on the model number of your device. Here I will discuss how to find your computer model number and system specs.
How To Find System Specs And What Is My Computer Model?
If you want to know your system specifications online, you must know the model number as that information is sorted in a database in reference to the model of your product. That is why you need to find the answer to ‘what model is my computer’.
# Solution 1: Find Computer Model Using Labels
If your device is fairly new and the labels are intact, that is the best place to find your system information and model number.
The product labels contain a bunch of information such as your model number, your OEM activation key, the Operating System information, architecture and make of the processor, the GPU information and the year of manufacture as well.
Pro Tip: If the label on your device fades, you can find a similar label on the device cover box as well. If you recently bought a device, take a picture using your phone or some other readily available camera and keep a copy of the information available on the labels synced to your storage.
# Solution 2: Find Computer Model Using CMD
If your system boots into Windows, you can use the native command-line interpreter to find out the make and model of your system.
To open the Command Prompt, open a Run dialog by pressing Win + R, type cmd and press Ctrl + Shift + Enter to run command prompt with administrative privileges.
- In an Administrator Command Prompt, type the following command to get the CPU vendor and the version:
wmic csproduct get vendor, version
- Type the following command to get the system model information alongside the architecture as well:
wmic computersystem get model,name,manufacturer,systemtype
Using these commands, you can find the make and model of your system along with the architecture as well.
Pro tip: to find the Windows serial number which is required in some service center forms, type the following command:
wmic bios get serialnumber
# Solution 3: Msinfo32 On Computers In A Running State
If you don’t want to bother with command prompt and typing commands as well, you can get all the system information by accessing the System information dialog box.
To access the system information dialog box, follow these steps:
- Open a Run dialog by pressing Win + R.
- Type msinfo32
- Press Enter to open the System Information dialog box.
Alternatively, you can also type System information in the Search app as well.
Here you will find all the information you need including OS information, System manufacturer and model, processor and bios information and platform as well.
However, if your system fails to start and boot into Windows, here is another step to help you get the product model number from the BIOS itself.
# Solution 4: Find Computer Model Using BIOS
To get into BIOS settings, press the BIOS settings key immediately after pressing the power key. Usually, it is Delete, Esc or F2 in case of Windows devices.
Once you enter the BIOS, you will find all the information you need including your Model Number, product information, serial numbers, etc.
