How to Identify the Type of Hard Drive on a Laptop


The fastest way to get general information about your laptop hard drive is to do a search for your laptop's model number online.

Getting Model and Serial Information Directly From a Hard Drive

You can also identify your laptop's hard drive by removing the drive from your system. This is usually a fairly simple task. However, you should always exercise extreme care when handling digital storage media. If you are uncomfortable or unfamiliar with the process, do not attempt to remove your laptop's hard drive.

The model number of your drive is usually in large numbers on the face of the drive. Laptop drives will often display their serial numbers after the letters S/N, but this is not always standard; you may need to check with the drive's manufacturer to distinguish between the numbers on the face of the drive.
