Computers come with a bewildering variety of identification information. In addition to the manufacturer's name, a desktop or laptop computer typically includes a model and series name, along with a product number, serial number and UPC number. For example, the Compaq Presario CQ62-410us Notebook PC has a part number of XG958UA#ABA and a universal product code, or UPC number, of 8-86111-26157-4. Once you know what you're looking for, however, you can find a Compaq model number fairly easily.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Locate the service tag on your Compaq computer. The tag is usually on the bottom of a laptop computer, and on the back, side or inside the drive door of a desktop model. The tag is labelled "service tag" and will likely have an HP logo, since HP manufactures Compaq computers.

  2. 2

    Identify the product name, such as Compaq Presario C700. The number with the name is sometimes referred to as the model number.

  3. 3

    Identify the p/n number, which is a part number for the computer. The p/n number is also sometimes referred to as the model number.

  4. 4

    Enter the number or numbers you identified into a search system, if you are asked to provide the model number. For example, a technical support website may ask you to provide your model number. Try both numbers to see which one produces the desired result.
