1] Find it under the laptop
Every manufacturer put a sticker under the laptop containing the service tag. It can be a combination of English letters or digits and letters. You may find the service tag as S/N, which represents Serial Number. In other words, the service tag and serial number are the same, and if you have already got the serial number, there is no need to look for the service tag.
If the sticker under your laptop has been damaged for some reason, you can use the Command Prompt and Windows PowerShell to get the same job done. A simple command can get you the service tag or serial number that you are looking for.
2] Find Service tag using Windows PowerShell
To get started, press Win+X to open the menu and choose Windows PowerShell. Then, enter the following command-
wmic bios get serialnumber
It shows the result immediately. If needed, you can copy the serial number from there and use it in the future.
Says Jose Deras, you can also use this:
Get-WmiObject Win32_BIOS SerialNumber | select SerialNumber
3] Find Service tag using Command Prompt
As said earlier, it is possible to use the Command Prompt to find the service tag on Windows 10 laptop. For that, search for “cmd” in the Taskbar search box, and click on the individual result to open Command Prompt. Then, enter this command-
wmic bios get serialnumber
Like PowerShell, Command Prompt shows the serial number the same way.
4] Check BIOS
Apart from these methods, you can use BIOS to find the serial number. However, there is no guarantee whether your motherboard manufacturer has included that option or not. If they did, you could restart your computer, press F12 to open the BIOS screen, and find the service tag.
That’s all! Hope this helped.
