Question about Gateway M405&M305CRV 15.0" LCD BEZEL (FRONT+BACK) (M405M305CRV150LCDBEZEL) CD-ROM Drive
My laptop was stolen and I need the seriel number to help get it recovered. I purchased it from Best Buy in Floruda in 2005.
I'm not sure how you want us to know what your laptop's serial number is. There's not much we can do...
