Knowing the motherboard’s model and serial number can be beneficial while searching for BIOS firmware updates from the manufacturer’s support site. A product’s serial number enables the manufacturer to identify and obtain more details about it, allowing for registration, replacement, or the discovery of suitable parts.
Although the brand, model, and serial number can be retrieved directly from the motherboard by opening the computer case, you can also get this information from within Windows. So, if you are confused about obtaining your PC’s motherboard model and serial number, the following methods will help you.
How to find your PC Motherboard Model and Serial Number
You can use the following methods to figure out the motherboard model and serial number on your Windows computer:
- Run WMIC Command
- Run WMIOBJECT Command
- Check on the Box or Bill
The commands work without admin permission. All you need is access to Windows Terminal or PowerShell.
1] Run WMIC Command
- Open Windows Terminal from Power Menu (WIn + X)
- In the Windows Terminal, enter the following command and press Enter:
wmic baseboard get product,Manufacturer,version,serialnumber
The above command will display information about the manufacturer, product version, serial number, and version of your motherboard.
2] Run WMIOBJECT Command
Finding the model and the serial number of a motherboard can also be done using Windows PowerShell.
- Open PowerShell or Windows Terminal
- On the new window, type or copy and paste the following command and press Enter:
Get-WmiObject win32_baseboard | Format-List Product,Manufacturer,SerialNumber,Version
It will display the model number and the serial number of the motherboard.
3] Check on the Box or Bill
Sometimes, when you do not have access to your PC and have no option to find the details, you can always check the package your motherboard came with to find the model information. But it will be possible only if you still have it lying around. The model and serial number will be written on a label attached to the box.
Also, you can find the details if you have the bill or a photo. Check the website or your inbox for the tax invoice or bill if you ordered it online.

Where is the serial number stored on the motherboard?
We used two commands to figure out the serial number. That tells us that the serial number is stored in the motherboard’s BIOS or UEFI. If the motherboard is not working, you can check if the serial number is printed somewhere on the motherboard. It is possible that the printed number may not be a complete serial number but only an identifier, so figuring out the invoice is always a better option.
