Q: can't find right model number to upgrade memory

my grandson has an hp laptop that i want to put in the maximum amount of memory, but i can't find any specs on the numbers on the computer. when i access the 'system' in his windows 7, it shows it has 1GB installed. i've tried all of the model numbers on the tag on the bottom of the computer and i get all sorts of model number listings for this same number. i've had hp computers before with G models or DV models, but i can't find any of these numbers. here are ALL of the numbers on the tag: 584037-001, 00196-205-667-281 (plus a code number), x16-96072 00196. i've looked up the 584037-001 on the net and i get posts showing 2-3-4 different model numbers that it could be. i've checked with the hp support page and with crucial memory and none of these numbers come up

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I spilled coffee on my laptop today and it went blank, i need to save my info and tried locating a model number, but there is no name, no model number, no serial number, no service tag, nothing, absolutely nothing.

There is a white sticker on the back and when i peeled it off, it just says Service Tag label 71.5x5.5mm
This is the most astounding stupid thing i have ever seen from a tech company and I have been in IT for over 20 years.
Its unbelievable and I want someone at Dell to respond what an ordinary person in an emergency who has lost everything in an accident would have to do to find this secret bit of information, the model number of my laptop.

I'm trying to add RAM to my laptop and I saw a video on youtube which made it look easy. One of the steps included running a cmd with administrator wich I was unable to do. I ran the cmd, but not with administrator, so the attempt was incomplete. I gave up for a few days. I've renewed my attempt. I searched the question in my subject and found a comment about the exact model number on the HP service tag. I found 3 different numbers on the laptop (that I thought might be model numbers). There is a number above the top right corner of the screen which reads: HP Pavilion dv6000. There are 4 sets of numbers on the HP service tag. I believe that the first top number on the service tag is the exact model number that he mentioned which is - Product: HP Pavilion dv6500. Then there is the serial number s/n: and the p/n: numer and the service tag number which is dv6648se. Am I correct? If you have any easy ways for me to add RAM or memory please let me know.

A:Notebook model: 13-u105nl Memory and hdd Upgrade

The memory is upgradeable to 16 gigs of DDR4-2133 in 2 slots or 2 x 8 gig.  It can take an M.2 mSSD drive, but only as an alternative to a regular 2.5 inch hard drive. There is a single bay and port and which drive you install depends on the adapter used.  HP has not yet posted a Manual for the 13-u100 series but the Manual for the 13-u000 series is available and shows access to the M.2 slot and memory. Manual  See pages 42 and 56. Memory upgrade is particularly challenging as it requires removal of the motherboard.  Post back with any questions.  If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find it.

I am generally a Mac user, but wanted a PC to run a few apps I can't run on my Mac, and didn't want to partition my drive and use Boot Camp (I'd done this previously, and chose not to do it this time). A few days ago I purchased a Lenovo 110-15ISK laptop, model number 80UD0017US. I had been looking at an HP laptop, but read that it was not so user friendly when upgrading the RAM and hard drive, and passed on that one (for that specific reason), and saw this Lenovo in the local Best Buy on sale. I usually check things out pretty throughly before I purchase, but I have to admit, I didn't on this purchase. Although the laptop is nice, I was not pleased to find out that you pretty much have to disassemble half of the computer to be able to access the memory and hard drive. Not exactly what I was hoping for. Anyway, I've decided to leave the hard drive as is, since it's a 1TB (although I prefer SSD and upgraded my MacBook Pro to an SSD on day 1 and love it!). However, I definitely want to upgrade the RAM from 4GB. I was a little horrified to find out that the 4GB is soldered onto the motherboard, and that there's only one available slot for RAM. I've read up a bit on it, on both this forum and through Google and Bing searches, and it seems there are differing opinions on how much RAM this model can accept and still be stable. Some say it can take as much as a 16GB DDR4 stick bringing the memory up to 20GB, and some say that the max is a 4GB stick, bringing the RAM u... Read more

Hi there @ann48, May the Forums be with you!  It is a great place to find the help you need, from other users, HP experts, and other support personnel.  I understand that you arel ooking for some information on what some of the codes in a model number could mean.  I am happy to assist with this. Please see the following page: HP Pavilion (computer) - wikipedia.org. On that page there is a section on "Model number suffixes". It is not complete as there are many others, but it gives the idea. Some codes are about the processor, or the regions the unit is to sold in, this could be due to power supplies, power cords, or possible wireless adapters as different countires have their own regulations about broadcast power, the number of channels in a frequency range, and other variables. Please let me know whether that works for you, and if it does resolve your issue, please mark this post as a solution.

I'm needing to reformat my laptop due to numerous software issues. Reinstalling Vista now, but I don't know my model number. I know the laptop is a Gateway, M series, and the model number is listed as 5A6. But that doesn't correspond to anything Gateway wants to pull up. I can't use the hardware tool from gateway as I don't have internet on it (it wasn't even booting anymore before).

Any help on how I can find the model number to get the necessary drivers would be hugely appreciated. I will answer any question I can to get this fixed.

it wasn't even booting anymore before.
Please explain.
Any help on how I can find the model number to get the necessary drivers would be hugely appreciated. I will answer any question I can to get this fixed.

The model number should be stamped on the back of the laptop

How can I find what model number my Realtek AC97 sound card is so I can download the latest driver. I have everest but I can't find it in there either. Maybe I'm not looking hard enough? Or do I have to look on the actual sound card itself?
 

A:sound card model number

If it's integrated to the motherboard, it's easier to go to the motherboard's website & download the drivers there.
