As like your smartphone, every computer and laptop are assigned a unique number called serial number or service tag or product id. In this tutorial, I’m going to show you how to find serial number on laptop. Suppose, you have got a problem on your laptop and you need technical support to resolve the issue. If you call the customer support, they will sure ask you for the serial number (also known as the service tag for Dell products) before log your request.
If you are using a laptop computer, you can easily get the serial number by turning your machine upside. Every laptop comes with a sticker having the product id and also the key of the preinstalled operating system. You can also follow this tutorial to know your Windows 10 product key.
You can also use this number to download the required drivers on the official website. Every computer manufacturer provides the drivers for different operating systems. If you know the service tag number, then you can easily download the drivers without searching anywhere. Go to the official website of your computer maker and just put the serial number to see all updated drivers available for your system. Is not it cool?
