Upgrading or replacing the PC components such as memory, hard drive, display, etc., requires the model number of the device to get the right component. The easiest way to find the model number is to check the sticker which affixed to your PC. There are also other ways to check it in case you can’t find the sticker generally found in old devices. Below are the three ways by which you can check the model number:
How to check the device model by using Command prompt?
Follow the below steps to find device model through command prompt:
- Use the keyboard shortcut Win + r to open the Run app
- Type cmd and hit enter to open the command prompt
- In the command prompt now type wmic csproduct get name to get model name
- And type wmic csproduct get name, identifyingnumber to show the model and serial number.
How to check the device model number through PowerShell
To view the device model using Powershell, follow these actions:
- Right-click on Start and select Windows PowerShell
- In Powershell type Get-CimInstance -ClassName Win32_ComputerSystem and hit enter to reveal the model
- To check the model with serial number type Get-CimInstance -ClassName Win32_bios
How to check the device model through System Information
Follow the below actions:

Note: All three ways will work on Windows 10 and Windows 8, but if you are on Windows 7 then only the Command Prompt and System information way will work, not the Powershell as Windows 7 doesn’t have Windows Powershell.
