Model number of any laptop computer usually consists of numbers and letters, and may include a series name. Model number is meant to identify an entire specific line up of laptop computers, and identical computers from the same line up will have identical or slightly varying model names. Unlike serial numbers, service tags or asset tags model name and number is not unique to each individual computer.
HP Compaq computers have labels that are found on the back of the computer or sometimes can be hidden behind a battery or behind another back-side panel like a RAM or HDD door. Unless found on the back cover itself a label with the model number information will be found after removal of the battery on the bottom of the laptop computer. Please do not confuse a model number with a serial number.
Hewlett Packard has released a few different series of laptops and it is best to include series name during your search to narrow down the results and to avoid confusion with the model numbers that cross-over between different series of HP computers.
As well try to include the full model number in your search on our website for the most appropriate results:
i.e. HP EliteBook 6930p
If no model number label is found on the back of the laptop, try to see if it's under the battery.
i.e. HP EliteBook 8460p
And if you have the original box that your HP computer shipped in, you can easily find the model number on the box, usually on a white sticker similar to the one pictured:
i.e. HP ProBook 650 G1
