How to find HP laptop serial number in Windows 7

Yes, I’m still stuck on Windows 7…I’ll leave out the sordid details of why.

Regardless, I needed to quickly find my serial number of my HP Elitebook Revolve 910 G2 so I could look up some driver information on the HP driver support website. When I could not get the HP device detection option to work, nor the FN-Esc key routine, I found this command line solution:

  • Go to the Windows Start and type cmd and hit enter
  • In the cmd dialog box, enter “wmic bios get serialnumber” and hit enter

Violia! One serial number. No idea if this works on other laptops, have not had a chance to try it.
