On some laptops, you can see the number on a sticker. On others you can see the number printed directly on the case. If your laptop has a removable battery, the serial number can sometimes be found on a sticker under the battery.
If you have a desktop PC,
look for some sort of sticker on the back, top, or side of the case. The number may also be on a sticker inside the case, so you may need to open it.
If you can't find the serial number on the PC itself,
try online for instructions specific to your model. The manufacturer's website should tell you exactly where to look.
