Find on a label

You can find your HP laptop serial number by looking for a product label. The product label is usually on the bottom, back edge, kickstand or inside the battery compartment of the laptop.

If your laptop has a removable battery:

  • Turn off your laptop and then remove the battery.
  • Look inside the battery compartment and you should see a printed information label containing your serial number next to a barcode.

The label will show your serial number next to the word Serial SN or S/N#. This should be above the barcode, model, product number and warranty information.

The laptop label could also be on or inside the product box if not found on the laptop itself. Most HP boxes will have labels on them with your laptop information.
