How to find model number or serial number of your laptop's components if you don't want to open it

Solved 1 Answers 60 Views Packard Bell

I have a Packard Bell Easynote ENTG81BA laptop and I want to install Windows 7 on it. There isn't any Windows 7 drivers on their website, but I can install it if I can get the serial number/model number of each component like the ethernet port, usb port etc. I do not want to open it, because then it will void my warranty. Does anyone know of a way I can get each component's correct driver?

Please help!
Thanks :-)

You can use this software DriverPack-Online after windows 7 installation, drivers pack online will automatically scan the system and install the correct/missing drivers.

Thanks for your reply Thom! I just have one concern, does it download drivers for Windows 7? Or does it download drivers for the current OS (Windows 10), or is it compatible with any OS? How do I just download it to a folder, without installing it, for a backup, because if I fresh install Windows 7, I won't have an internet connection to download the drivers then, so I need to download it before I install Windows 7.

Thanks! :-)

We are glad to here that.

Hot News (SASSA card expiring December 2017).

SASSA wish to put it on record that no beneficiary of social grants will be affected by this expiry date. SASSA is in a planning phase regarding the future payment of social grants once the contract with the current service provider CPS (Cash Paymaster Services) comes to an end in March 2018. As soon as final plans are in place beneficiaries will be informed about the updating process later on in the year. So there no need to run for a renewal. See SASSA payment cycle for December 2017 HERE.
