Is there any way to pull serial numbers without taking apart my PC?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey guys, so I just built my new rig, and I forgot to grab all the serial numbers off my things to register them for warranty. I could pull my monitors SN from the OSD, but I don't want to pull apart my PC again to get all the SN numbers. Is there any way to pull them from my GPU, PSU, Mobo, and liquid cooler?

 

Thanks

Do you have the boxes for them? Chances are decent, at least for the first three (dunno about liquid coolers so I won't speak on that), that the serial numbers will be on the box.

Awesome, thanks, I'll check.

Aren't these numbers also on the boxes of the products? (or have you thrown those away?)

 

Also, I'm not sure about what the Canadian law says about this, but at least where I live, warranty is something you automatically get without any form of registration. 

 

Apparently in the US there's this rule that applies: https://www.law.cornell.edu/cfr/text/16/700.7

which basically states that in order to receive warranty, a customer cannot be required to register a product.

Yes in Windows 10.

 

https://community.spiceworks.com/topic/2074313-modification-to-asset-inventory-script-to-capture-serial-numbers-of-hardware

 

The script in question captures the monitor serial numbers.

 

I wrote my own script at the office to get the machine serial numbers. These are just the powershell commands that get it

#Machine/BIOS
Get-WmiObject win32_bios

# GPU's
Get-WmiObject Win32_VideoController

#RAM
Get-WmiObject Win32_PhysicalMemory

#Disks

Get-WMIObject win32_physicalmedia

PSU, Coolers, are only possible on Server boards, and even then, usually not the serial numbers unless it's HP or Dell as they don't typically have data transferred to the MB. GPU's do not appear to have Serial numbers accessible from this.

 

If you're afraid of taking the machine apart again, just open the chasis and use your camera phone with the flashlight mode on, or the flash set to forced. 

 

You can see what else is there with

Get-WmiObject -List

For Linux and FreeBSD you can use DMIdecode. https://linux.die.net/man/8/dmidecode

 

SiSoft Sandra can access the same DMI information as well. SiSoft basically just does the same Get-WmiObject as above.

Nope for PSU and most likely for AIO too. Unless it has USB connection. Mobo has no way of getting that info off them. Rest might be shown from software.

Serial numbers can typically be found on both the item and packaging.

That way the store selling the product can more easily keep track of what products have been sold, specifically for warranty related reasons.

(So you can't just have a dead GPU, buy that GPU new and return the dead one).

 

Usually the serial numbers can be found on a white label on the product packaging with 'S/N' written before it.
