How to find motherboard serial no using serial no

Go to Lenovo site under support. First I would look for warranty and it will ask for the serial number. Then I would look for product specifications where it will show you the specs for your serial number and model number. The motherboard will more than likely be listed there.

I have a toshiba laptop and I can not read the serial number on the bottom. The charger is broken. How do I know which charger to order?

There are a couple of ways to do this. First, there should be a product and/or serial number on the charger itself. You could google these numbers. Also, sometimes, when you remove the battery there is more info about the laptop. Maybe the label where the serial number is unreadable has a readable produst number example (p/n). Lastly, often the replacements from the manufacture are expensive. You can get a universal charger at someplace like Best Buy for around $60.00.
One more possibility. When you turn on your computer, it may have some information about the computer on the screen before it boots to windows. You may be able to go into setup and se the model of the motherboard which could help in your search.

How can I find the part number for an HP laptop motherboard without opening the computer itself? the motherboard needs to be replaced and we need to order the part online.

You can not know the motherboard serial number it-self without opening the computer... But you have your product ID and computer serial number on the back of the laptop. That should give you, at the HP Support web-page, the drivers list for your specific built. Knowing the driver, you can know what chip-set it's holding, and so, the motherboard also.

Trying to get back to factory settings using 3 back-up discs. It asks for a system serial number but won't accept the 12 digit serial number from the base of the unit. It's an old E4715

Check the BIOS for the serial number. If the motherboard has been replaced then sometimes the BIOS will keep the serial number from the old machine, so when you try to put in the new one it checks it against the one saved and says sorry. but if you can see the serial number in the BIOS then just copy that one down and use it.

Dead motherboard

Well, why do you need the motherboard's serial number? You should return the laptop to whom you bought it from. If still under warranty. Please mark this is a solution if I helped. Thanks!

The position of the number, may be different depending on manufacturer.

sometimes you also find the number repeated on a sticher on motherboard.

Submit the question on Fixya again, including all information on motherboard model number.
