Help Finding a Part Number

How to Find a Part Number on Your Equipment

The following information will be of assistance if you are having difficulties finding a part number on your equipment.

Identifying the part number is very important to ensure you will obtain the correct replacement part.

It is not advised to order a part based on a description or model name without knowing the part number!

General Guidelines:
  • On complete computer systems, part numbers are most commonly found on or near the Serial Number label. (see sample 1 below)

  • On sub-assembly parts - such as motherboards, drives or memory - part numbers are often found on special part number labels. (see sample 2 below)

  • Many manufacturers will use Model and Part numbers interchangeably. (see sample 3 below)

  • Many manufacturers have multiple part numbers for the same part. (see sample 4 below)

  • Part numbers are often found on sub-assemblies only, not on the individual parts or components. For example: do not look for a part number on a capacitor or other board level components.

  • Do not order a replacement without a part number - product descriptions are not to be used for identifying a part. Subtle - yet significant - differences are often not listed in descriptions.
