Hi There and Welcome to Fixya!

Serial numbers for laptop/notebook computers can also be found in :

  • BIOS Screen
  • Receipt of purchase
Depending on the system, there's a certain key to press for you to boot to BIOS. First is to make sure that your computer is turned off, turn it back on and start tapping on "DEL" (sometimes, "F2") key repeatedly until you see a different screen.

From here, you can look for the computer's serial number, usually in the main page. For more information and guides, you can visit their support site and ways to contact their phone support :

I have recovered my kitchenaid pro 500 mixer that was stolen, but the serial numbers have been removed. is there any other place to look


The sticker is the only number that they have here in NZ. I don't know how they operate in your country but here if it is registered we can just ask the distributor for the serial number of the products that we have registered under our name. Our database is searchable by customer name or serial number.

How to recover a stolen gps


Hello,

Unfortunately there is no means of tracking the stolen GPS.
If you have a record of the serial number, you could report it to the police.
The GPS may show up at a local pawn shop and if the police have the serial number on file, they could possibly recover it for you.

Wat is a serial code


Hi,
A laptop serial number is unique number and has importance, its proof of ownership and can help identity you as the owner if it's ever misplaced or stolen.

Serial numbers on a laptop are usually on the base, within a white sticker. You may also find on that sticker a barcode and the model number of the laptop.
If this helpful, please give a testimonial and vote by pressing button thumbs up.

Unfortunately,unless you installed tracking software/hardware, there is no way to track it. The best thing you can do is to report it stolen (with serial number) to Compaq and local authorities.

My laptop was stolen, the police said they can track it if i gave them an IP address, I dont know what the IP address is but I do have the serial number, how can I get the Ip address using the serial...


Stolen laptop can only be recovered if you have MAC address of laptop. IP adress are temporary and can be changed or altered, its not worthy to find IP instead try to get MAC adress.
If you have registerd your laptop with its Manufacturing Site like Lg, DELL etc then you can contact them and probably by providing them serial no. you can get MAC address. Every machine ha different MAC address and I am sure with your serial no. you can get this information from your dealer or manufacturer. GOOD LUCK

Bmx serial numbers...... How do I find out if the bike I just bought for 40 bucks is stolen?


Usually there will be a bike shop sticker on it, if so, call them and they can tell you who owns the bike by the serial number. No sticker, check the phone book and find out what shops sell that brand. (At least, that is how we do it, we save every serial number for our customers and sometimes we know the bike was stolen before our customer because the police call us). If there is no sticker, call the police dept and ask if someone has reported one missing or look in the paper. Other than that, I don't know of any more ideas.

My lap top was stolen


Computers often have a label from MicroSoft with the serial number of the installed OS. Both laptops I bought over the years had the sticker applied, one in the back, the other underneath.  If you contact MS with that number (it could also be listed on a recovery disk supplied with the laptop when new), they will provide you with a replacement disk for some nominal fee; it used to be $10.
You might also try emailing Acer to see if they can (or will) provide you with a recovery disk set as long as you can prove ownership of the PC.
On the viruses (virii?), since you need to reinstall the OS, once i had the needed CDs in hand, I would format the drive before re-installing.
