Ever wonder how can you find laptop serial number using command prompt???
Here is a quick command that you can use to find the Serial Number of your machine.
To find the serial number, open command prompt (cmd) and type the following command.
c:\>wmic bios get serialnumber
This will give you your machine’s serial number by pulling the information from BIOS. This is how it will look like.

Update: Corrected syntax in the command

Is there a way to get the SKU product # for HP machines.

I need the model#'s to find out the warranty
No he meant your command states "serial number" as two words, not one word "serialnumber". Yes, upper and lower case in serialnumber works.
this cammand is very good to see your system serial number
really good ....thanks a lot
Hello, I gave this commande to someone and here's the message he got:
wmic bios get serialnumber does not seem to work. Error message notes that only administrator group members can use WMIC.EXE.
Is that right that only administrators on a pc can use this command ?
